Homemade Wheat Thins

Homemade Wheat Thins? How cool is that? My kids (and I) love crackers, so I was excited to try these out. I thought they turned out great. They didn't taste just like the ones you buy at the store, but were a good wheat cracker. The thinner you make them, the better.

1 ¼ cup whole wheat flour*
1 ½ tablespoons honey
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon paprika
4 tablespoons butter, cut up
¼ cup water
¼ teaspoon vanilla
salt for topping

Preheat oven to 400. In a food processor bowl combine the whole wheat flour (*start with 1 cup + 2 tablespoons and add the last 2 tablespoons at the end if needed), sugar, salt, paprika and butter. Pulse until you get fine crumbs. Combine water, honey and vanilla and pour over dry mixture. Process until everything is evenly combined. Don't over mix. Form into a ball and cut into 4 pieces.  Cover the dough until ready to use.  Roll one piece at a time as thin as you can and cut into squares. Place cut crackers onto cookie sheet and bake for 5 to 7 minutes, or until light brown and crisp.
