  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder (not garlic salt!)
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2/3 to 3/4 cup tepid water
  • Equipment: cookie cutters, preferably dog shapes

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine flour and cheese and mix well. Add the olive oil and garlic powder.

Slowly add the water to the flour mixture, 2 tablespoons at a time, until you get a workable, yet slightly stiff dough. Don't be afraid if there are some crumbs left behind.

Knead the dough for two minutes.

Roll out on floured surface to 1/2" thick, cut into shapes. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Cool on wire rack. Refrigerate in airtight container.
