Chewy Wheat Crackers

This recipe is from Grandmother Searls.  Use high-quality whole wheat flour for the best results.

Chewy Wheat Crackers
2  whole wheat flour
2 c oats (quick cooking or chop up regular rolled)
1 t salt
2 T sugar

1 c water
8 T butter
Combine above in a glass measuring cup and microwave until butter's melted.

Stir together, knead only to combine.  Divide in half.  Pat into 1" thick disc, roll to desired thickness. (thicker for chewier flat-bread, thinner for crispy crackers).  Cut diagonally to make "diamonds" or use cookie cutters.  Bake without removing negative area, they will pull apart when cooked.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds, coarse salt, or brown sugar and cinnamon. Lightly roll to embed topping.
Repeat with other half.

Bake at 350F for about 20 minutes.

Store in an airtight container.
