Around afternoon snack time I had a bowl of hummus, carrots and celery. I wanted crackers with it and there were none in the pantry.
Solution? Make my own.

Wheat Crackers

Wheat Crackers

1 c. flour, 1/4 c. wheat germ, 1/2 tsp. salt (plus additional for topping), 1/2 tsp. paprika, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, 1/2 c. water, 1/2 Tbsp. dark brown sugar, 4 Tbsp. butter

Preheat oven 400°F. Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Make sure sides are scrapped and dough is throughly mixed. Roll out on a floured surface until about 1/16″. Use lattice pastry cutter to cut crackers. I used 1 1/2″ spacers with wavy edges. Allow dough to sit for 10 minutes. Place crackers on a baking tray, sprinkle salt on top and bake for 7 minutes or until crispy.

I was floored when Hubster had nothing but great reviews after hesitantly trying my crackers. He said the crackers were really tasty, even better than Wheat Thins from the store. As he grabbed another handful, he continued saying that there’s no bad after taste like with other wheat crackers. I’m glad this was a winner for Hubster as well as me.

*This would be really great with 1 Tbsp. rosemary mixed into the dough.

What is your favorite thing to eat with crackers?
