Homemade Wheat Thins (and variations)

Here’s that cracker recipe I promised when I posted the Cheese Ball recipe.  They are by far the best I’ve made and the variations I came up were a huge hit.  Wether you make the Sundried tomato and basil, garlic and herb, cheddar bacon, or just plain, I think it’s safe to say that you’ll be happy.  They really are super easy to make as well and way cheaper to make than buy.  And I don’t know about you, but I always feel better knowing what goes into our food, rather than trying to decipher an ingredient list.
HOMEMADE WHEAT THINS
adapted from everyday food storage, variations by My Stained Apron
3/4 cup whole wheat flour (I use white wheat)
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 T brown sugar
1 1/2 T dry buttermilk powder (or use buttermilk in place of water)
2 T seeds (sesame, poppy, flax, or mixture), optional
1/2 cup water (or buttermilk if you aren’t using the buttermilk powder)
3 T oil or melted butter
For sprinkling the tops: Kosher salt, garlic seasoning, extra seeds, etc.
Mix dry ingredients together, then add the wet and mix together to make a soft, sticky dough.
Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit for 10 minutes so the wheat can absorb the moisture.
Sprinkle the top with a little flour, then divide dough into half.
Place dough on a silicone baking mat and top with a piece of plastic wrap and roll out very thinly, to the edges. (about 12 by 16 inches)
(If you don’t have a mat, just roll out on a sprayed underside of a baking sheet)
Cut into squares with a pizza wheel and set silicone mat inside a baking sheet.
Sprinkle with desired topping or a combination of a couple.
Bake at 350 degrees for 14-15 minutes.  Break apart and enjoy!
