Wheat Crackers

This recipe tastes just like the one my mom used to make when I was little, but it's a little easier. The crackers are kind of bland, so depending on what you like, you can add more salt, different spices or cheeses, or just eat them with a tasty dip (like hummus). Once again, a nicely versatile recipe--and it's super easy to make.


1 3/4 c. whole wheat flour

1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour

3/4 tsp. salt

1/3 c. vegetable oil

1 c. water

salt for sprinkling

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, and 3/4 teaspoon salt.
  • Pour in vegetable oil and water; mix until just blended.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough as thin as possible - no thicker than 1/8 inch. Place dough on ungreased baking sheet, and mark squares out with a knife, but don't cut through.
  • Prick each cracker with a fork a few times, and sprinkle with salt.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until crisp and light brown. Baking time may be different depending on how thin your crackers are. When cool, remove from baking sheet, and separate into individual crackers.
