Hungry? A Post For Wheat Thin Addicts

Every week I try to make a few snacks or breakfast items to last the week. This week I decided to try (again) making my own wheat thins. Wheat thins are ,in my opinion, the world's best cracker! I was watching a talk show a few months ago and realized that there is alot of sugar in my precious wheat thins. Don't believe me...go check your box...I'll wait... Crazy, right!? is a recipe a friend posted on Facebook. These will satisfy your munchies. I promise!
1 1/2 cups flour (all-purpose)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar (I use Splenda)
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp butter (at room temperature)
2/3 cup milk
salt (or other dried herbs and seasoning) for sprinkling

In a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar and salt. cut in the butter and mix until you have a coarse meal. Slowly blend in the milk just until you have a dough that will hold together. divide the dough into 2 pieces for rolling. Roll the dough out on a floured surface to about 1/8 inch thickness. sprinkle with salt and roll over lightly with the rolling pin again. cut the dough into 2×2 inch squares. poke each square several times with a fork.

Transfer squares to an ungreased baking sheet and bake at 325 F for 20-25 minutes, until crackers are golden brown.

I think the only thing I feel I should stress is, make sure they are rolled 1/8 thin! VERY THIN!

(Sorry, there aren't more pics but I really bake like this every week, so I forgot to take pics of every step...maybe my next post, I will remember!)

Here you go! Fresh, Crispy, Salty Wheat Thins!
