Recipe For Homemade Wheat Thins


My brother in Houston made a new year’s resolution to only eat foods with ingredients that he can pronounce. He called me a few weeks ago, knowing that I was doing this series and asked if I could come up with a homemade version of his favorite crackers, Wheat Thins. I found a recipe that sounded really tasty. I adjusted the amount of sugar and tried a rosemary/garlic variation. They tasted almost identical to the store bought crackers. The cost difference was huge. It cost me less than a dollar to make these.
