Thin Wheat Crackers
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • ¾ cup all-purpose white flour
  • 1½ tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 5 tablespoons peanut oil (plus 2 teaspoons for baking sheets)
  • ¼ cup water (more if needed)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flours, sugar, salt, and baking soda.
  3. Add oil and water, mix thoroughly. Add just enough additional water to be able to form the dough into a ball.
  4. Pour 1 teaspoon of oil on baking sheet and sprinkle generously with salt. Set aside.
  5. Working with half of the dough at a time, on a floured surface roll dough out as thinly as possible. Cut into squares with a pizza cutter.
  6. Place squares onto oiled baking sheet. Turn each one over so that all squares are lightly coated on both sides.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes. Flip crackers over and continue to bake until browning around edges, approximately another 5-8 minutes. Watch carefully.
  8. Put baking sheet on rack to cool.
  9. Repeat with remaining dough.
  10. Makes approximately 60 crackers.
