Flatbread/Bagel Thins


6-7 cups whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons yeast
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup shortening
1 tablespoon salt
2 1/4cups very warm water (120-130 degrees)

Mix 3 cups whole wheat flour, honey, shortening, salt, and yeast in 4 quart bowl. Add warm water. Beat on low speed, scraping bowl frequently, 1 minute. Stir in enough flour, 1 cup at a time, to make dough easy to handle. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic about 10 minutes. Place in greased 2 ½ quart bowl, turn greased side up. Cover and let rise in warm place until double 40-60 minutes. Punch down, let rise again or divide dough into small portions and roll/shape into thin circles. Put on pan. Let rise. Bake 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Great for making pizzas and open faced sandwiches.
