I ran across this recipe for Wheat Thins from Lisa of Syncopated Mama and I thought I would try them today.
Oh my! And, then, I made another batch adding strawberries! Triple-decker OH MY!!
If there’s anyone who knows me, they know I cannot follow a recipe, I always have to tweak it. However, the first batch was wonderful! They crisped up nice, I had added extra Red Sea Salt on top and bottom and lightly pressed it into the dough before I scored it.
Without further hesitation, here is Lisa’s recipe:
1-1/2 Cups Wheat Flour
4 Tablespoons softened Butter (not margarine)
1-1/2 Tablespoons Honey
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Cup Water or Whey
In a mixing bowl, add everything but the water. Mix a little bit, then add the water a little at a time while the mixer is on low. The dough will gather together in a ball (or two or three, depending on the mixer attachment you use).
Remove and roll out thin, using the some wheat flour underneath as necessary. Put on a greased baking sheet. Using a pizza cutter, score (do not cut through, only half-way) the dough into whatever size squares you would like.
Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes (watch it close) and then turn over the dough and bake for another 5-10 minutes. Remove immediately to a wire rack and they will continue crisping up. When cool, snap apart.
For the addition of strawberries, chop 3 strawberries very very fine and add to dough. I added about 1 Tablespoon more of brown sugar. You will use less water and a little bit more wheat flour. Roll out and score as instructed.
Both the plain wheat thins and the strawberry wheat thins came out tasting wonderful. This gets me ready to make them with different additions, like:
- Garlic and oregano
- Carrots or other vegetables
- Cinnamon and sugar (I’m diabetic, so I’ll use either honey or liquid stevia)
- Tomatoes and rosemary (yummy!)
- Spaghetti sauce-flavored (I’m thinking add about 3 Tablespoons of meatless sauce and extra garlic powder)
The possibilities are endless!
What other flavors would you make?
Would you make these? Each week, I also make homemade sandwich thins and they are yummy, too. Roadrunner loves them for his sandwiches.
Save this page, make the wheat thins, then come back and comment how they turned out for you.
