Homemade Wheat Crackers

**for details, photos and inspiration, visit the website at which I originally found the recipe:

http://www.peterandrewryan.com/baking/2008/10/homemade-wheat-thins/

recipe from Recipeland.com. good with dips, cheeses, spreads, etc.

1 1/2 cups flour (all-purpose)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp butter (at room temperature)
2/3 cup milk
salt (or other dried herbs and seasoning) for sprinkling

1. in a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar and salt. cut in the butter and mix until you have a coarse meal.

2. slowly blend in the milk just until you have a dough that will hold together. divide the dough into 2 pieces for rolling.

3. roll the dough out on a floured surface to about 1/8 inch thickness. sprinkle with salt and roll over lightly with the rolling pin again. cut the dough into 2×2 inch squares. poke each square several times with a fork.

4. transfer squares to an ungreased baking sheet and bake at 325 F for 20-25 minutes, until crackers are golden brown.

** I had to bake mine for 30 minutes to get the perfect amount of crispiness.
