Homemade Wheat Thins!

I ran accross a recipe for homemade wheat thins, and it caught my attention! I needed something to make while watching American Idol so I gave it a go! It was fast, simple, and takes only a few ing. from food storage. This recipe will make a whole box full of crackers! I am so suprised how good they are! Made from whole wheat, with no high fructose corn syrup or sugar, unlike regular wheat thins you buy at the store, these are great for you! I put them in a little baggies and Gracie has been eating them like crazy. (I must admit buying crackers is faster, but I gained great satisfaction in knowing how to make them...and knowing my family will eat them!)
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup white flour
1/3 cup oil
1 cup water
garlic salt, onion powder

Mix flour together. Mix oil, salt and water together, then add to flour. Knead as little as possible to make a smooth dough. (it took me about 3 minutes of kneading) Roll dough out very thin. Not paper thin, but almost! That is the key, real thin!Score with a knife desired size:

Prick each cracker a few times with a fork. Sprinkle dough lwith mixture of garlic salt and onion powder, or italian seasoning dry mix. Bake in 350 degree oven till light brown, about 25 minutes or less.

Tip: Let cool, they will harden and get crunchy the longer they cool. The next day we thought they were alot more crunchy. Also, watch them close in the oven, they will burn fast!
