now, I may not be the most healthy person around- but I try. a bit.
I like to cook.
I like to know what is in my food.
there are so much preservatives, and who- knows- what in stuff you buy in packages. really, aren't homemade cookies so much better than store bought ones?
when I saw this recipe for wheat thins, I had to try it.
we like wheat thins around here.
this is what they looked like: not too bad.
here is the recipe in case any of you might want to try them:
1 1/4 c whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp paprika
4 tbsp butter
1/4 c water
1/4 tsp vanilla
mix flour, salt, sugar, and paprika. cut in butter. add water and vanilla, mix until smooth.
heat oven at 400. lightly grease baking sheets.
divide dough into 2, on floured surface, roll into a large rectangle. flip dough frequently, so it doesn't stick. roll it 1/16" thick. cut into 1 1/2 " squares. put on baking sheets. sprinkle with salt if desired.
bake one sheet at a time for 5-7 minutes.
next time I make these I am going to try to roll them even thinner.
then they will be more crispy.
