Homemade Wheat Thins: Make Your Own Monday #5

Homemade Wheat Thins CrackersMy brother in Houston made a new year’s resolution to only eat foods with ingredients that he can pronounce.  He called me a few weeks ago, knowing that I was doing this series and asked if I could come up with a homemade version of his favorite crackers, Wheat Thins.    I found a recipe that sounded really tasty at recipeland.com.  I adjusted the amount of sugar and tried a rosemary/garlic variation.  They tasted almost identical to the store bought crackers.  The cost difference was huge.  It cost me less than a dollar to make these.

  1. >I'm going to have to try these soon using my gluten-free flour! Hopefully they'll turn out just as good because we miss decent crackers!!!

  2. >I used to make these all of the time. The dough killed my food processor and I haven't gotten a new one yet…but I miss them. Yum.

  3. >Wow, I'm impressed! And less than a dollar is even better! I just made graham crackers and they are so much better than store-bought! I'm sure these are far better also! 🙂
