Crackers are a total sore spot for me. Besides the simple mills almond crackers, there isn't another cracker that is clean and actually tastes good. Trust me, I have tried them all. It really isn't hard to make a simple cracker so I took my frustration and decided to show them, HA!
These are fantastic. They were so easy. I doubled the recipe and we had crackers in a container for a week!
In high school, I could eat an entire box of wheat thins in one sitting. I would also guzzle it down with a diet Mountain Dew and a few handfuls of cheez its. Needless to say, I have come a LONG way! These are so much better for me and are truly so very close to the real thing.
Fresh Milled Wheat Thin Crackers
1 1/2 cups soft wheat fresh milled on fine grind.
4 Tbs unsalted melted butter
2 Tbs coconut sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup of water ( if you need more, add 1 TBS at a time)
Preheat oven at 400 degrees. Add the flour, coconut sugar, and salt to a medium bowl. add the melted butter. Combine with a fork. Add the water. You want the dough to come together but not be wet. If it is too dry and is falling apart when you mash together, then add more water a tablespoon at a time. I test it by rolling it into a ball to see if holds.
If you have a cooking stone, use it to roll your dough out. Roll it pretty thin because they won't rise. They will be the thickness that you roll them to. You can also line a baking sheet with parchment paper and roll it out. Use a pizza cutter to cut them into squares. Put them in the oven for 12-15 minutes.
* Note: If you make them too thick, and your cracker is soft instead of crispy. Leave them out on the counter a few hours/overnight and they will be perfect once some air dries them out a little more.
