1 cup vegetable shortening (see note)
1 tsp unsalted butter
1/4 cup egg whites
1/4 cup honey
Pink or yellow food coloring (optional)
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup finely grated Cheddar cheese (see note)
Sesame seeds, dyed with food coloring optional

Commercial bakers use Cheddar cheese powder.

1. In a large bowl, beat shortening and butter with an electric mixer at high speed until creamy. Add egg whites and honey. Beat until smooth. Beat in food coloring if desired.
2. Combine flour, garlic powder and cheese. Beat into shortening mixture. Stir in more food coloring if you like.
3. Gather dough into a ball. Divide it in half, then in fourths and so on until you have 36 small pieces. Flour you hands and roll the pieces into balls. Or use a pastry bag to shape the cookies. Place them on a ungreased cookie sheet, then use a floured fork to gently flatten them in a crisscross design. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.

4. Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven until firm, about 10 minutes. To make the cookies crunchier, after baking we turned off the heat and left them in the oven about 5 minutes, first running a spatula under each one they would not stick to the pan.

For even crunchier cookies, use only 1/2 cup shortening and 1/2 tsp unsalted butter
