PetSugar's Kitty Crunchies

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 tablespoon shortening
1 cup warm water
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a bowl, mix all ingredients except cheese. Flour countertop (I like to flour taped down waxed paper for easy cleanup) and roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Use tiny fish cookie cutters or a pizza slicer to make approximately 1-inch-square treats. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese. Place once inch apart on cookie sheet. Bake 5 to 8 minutes, or until browned. Cool completely and store in an airtight container. Makes three dozen.
