I love Wheat Thins but I don't like the ingredients in them, the ones that aren't necessary! I use to eat an entire box of the Parmesan Basil ones
years ago but they stopped making them so I haven't really cared to buy any other flavor.
Well I found a recipe online recently for homemade wheat thins and let me tell you it was so simple and took no time at all!
I would say from start to finish with putting them in the oven about 18 mins.
is the link to the actual recipe which gives instructions on how to make
them with or without a food processor. I do not have a food processor I have an immersion blender like
. I got it to make my sons food, which it is GREAT for. The actual
immersion blender I want is about $200+ and will be my Christmas present lol. I want to make a lot of things but my little hand held one would burn up
if I tried to puree meat with it! I wouldn't recommend using an immersion hand blender for this recipe, use a food processor or your hands! I used my
Here is all you need ingredient wise:
***1 1/4 tbs fresh basil & 3/4 cup fresh grated (brick fresh) parmesan cheese***
^^^those are my added ingredients for the topping.
Yield: About 3 dozen. I highly suggest doubling this recipe.
1 1/4 cups (155 grams) whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tablespoons (20 grams) sugar
1/2 teaspoon (3 grams) table salt, plus additional for topping
1/4 teaspoon paprika
4 tablespoons (55 grams) unsalted butter, cold is fine, cut into small bits
And you can find the rest of the directions here
. There are directions for
using a food processor and for by hand. I did by hand and it was just as simple, imo.
For the "parmesan basil" part. Mix both ingredients in a food processor or use a hand blender, which is what I used. Blend then sprinkle on each
cracker before baking. If you don't have either item you can finely chop both together til blended.
sorry picture is blurry, couldnt get a decent picture.
On a cookie sheet before topping added. I covered the cooking sheet with parchment paper
With added parmesan basil topping
These were definitely delicious! Next time I will add a little more salt and probably add the parmesan and basil to the flour mixture. This is a
simple and easy recipe that is also quite tasty!! I am really happy I found it! I will be making these for Thanksgiving and they will also be added to
my holiday food baskets. I will have to experiment with flavors for the holidays as well.
