As much as I love chocolate, I can’t get enough of my salty snack foods. Like, I can eat half a box of Wheat Thins before lunch and still eat lunch. Not that I am proud of that.
Wheat Thins are addictive. You keep getting handful after handful out of the box. My mom always says to put what you are going to eat in a bowl and then leave the kitchen. I’ve been working on it, buuuut it isn’t go
Capturing the taste of Wheat Thins in a homemade cracker is hard. There are dozens of copy cat recipes floating around the Internet, but I chose to use this one. For my first time making crackers, I was pretty pleased with the results. It is not the exact Wheat Thin taste, but it was close and unfortunately, just as hard to stop eating. Good thing my brothers share my love of crackers with me.
Roll onto parchment paper to1/4 inch thickness (or whatever you can get it too, as you can tell, mines are a little thicker.) Cut into squares and bake for 10-15 minutes or until browned and crispy.
Notes: I didn’t cut my first batch into squares before baking and it took 20+ minutes to bake. And I forgot to take one batch out of the oven. (pic below:/) However, cutting them into squares before baking vs. halfway through worked much better!
What is pretty is all the Chopped ideas I got the last week. It was nearly impossible to choose but I finally decided to make a strawberry vanilla pie with a granola based crust and garnish. Thank you all for all the ideas!
