Faux Wheat Thins

Faux wheat thins

Whole wheat and white flour adds grains to Faux Wheat Thins while turmeric and paprika flavor.


1-3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
1-1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon turmeric
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup plus 1-tablespoon water
Kosher or sea salt


Preheat oven to 425-degrees.

In food processor, blend flours, sugar, salt and spices. Whisk oil and water together in separate bowl until emulsified. With processor running, slowly add oil and water to flour mixture until it comes together in smooth ball.

Divide dough in half and roll each piece out on lightly floured surface into rectangle about 12 inches by 14 inches or the size of your largest cookie sheet and about 1/16 inch thick, the thinner the better. Transfer dough to cookie sheet by draping it over your rolling pin. Do not worry if it gets distorted. Using long, sharp knife, trim dough into neat rectangle and score into 1-1/2 inch squares, being careful not to cut all the way through. Prick each square three times with a fork and sprinkle with kosher or freshly ground sea salt to taste.

Place a cookie sheet in center of preheated oven and bake about eight minutes or until edges have started to brown and blisters are forming on top surface. Remove from oven and loosen crackers with large spatula before flipping whole sheet of crackers over in one piece. It is helpful to use another cookie sheet to do this, placing it over the baking sheet and then turning both over before sliding crackers back onto the original baking sheet.

Return crackers to oven and bake six to seven minutes more, until edges are well browned. If outer edges brown first, snap them off and return rest of crackers to oven. Although you do not want to burn the crackers, they need to be nicely browned all over to be crisp. Slide sheet of crackers onto rack to cool. When cool, break apart at scored lines. Store in airtight container - a tin works best.
