Now, the recipe is fairly simple. And all together it didn’t take too much time. It’s just that next time I will use a rolling pin – rather than just my hands – to make the thins a little thinner. They turned out more like wheat thicks – as my friend Melanie suggested they be named.
Cost? Hmmm. Freshly ground wheat, butter, paprika… Pennies for a cookie sheet full. Here is the recipe I used, thanks to Emily Malloy’s Cleanliness is Next to Godliness. I’ll be making these again! Homemade wheat thins – you tasty money saver, you!
Savings. Let’s just round the numbers and say that homemade wheat thins cost 50 cents to make. Though I don’t think they cost even that much. If we go through a box a week of $3.50 wheat thins, then that means we’d save roughly $12 a month. A savings of $144 in a year!!!
A nice frugal experiment we’ll roll into the Hodgepodge mix. How about you?
