Everyday Wheat Thins

These crisps have a simple rustic charm to them. They are a little bland so go ahead and pair them with a bold cheese. Adapted from 'Everyday Crackers' recipe in the Irish Pantry cookbook by Noel McMeel.

  • 1 cup organic whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup organic all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup 2% milk


  • Preheat oven to 325F.
  • In a food processor, combine flours, salt and butter. Pulse untll the butter is incorporated.
  • Pour in the milk, a little at a time, and process until a dough comes together. It should be soft, but not sticky.
  • Turn the dough onto a floured surface and divide in half. Roll each portion of dough until very, very thin. Cut dough into 2-inch squares and transfer them to large, ungreased baking sheets. You can place them right next to each other.
  • Poke each cracker several times with a fork (great job for kids!), sprinkle with salt if desired, and place the pan in the oven.
  • Bake crackers for 18-20 minutes, until lightly browned and crisp. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
