I found this recipe in the Deseret Cookbook, and it always intrigued me. You can actually make homemade Wheat Thins? How cool is that?! I made them for a New Years Eve party back in 2006, but then I lost the cookbook. I got a new one early in 2009 and finally made these crackers again a couple weeks ago. They are super easy to make and yummy, too. The recipe says to flavor them with a light sprinkling of salt before baking, you can be creative with the flavor. I've made them with onion and garlic powders and salt. They were a hit!
