1 1/2cupshredded Daiya cheeseI used a mixture of mozzarella and cheddar styles b/c it is what I had on hand, any cheese would work here
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the dry ingredients together.
Using a pastry blender, your hands, or a food processor, cut in any mix of the palm shortening/vegan butter until crumbly.
Stir in the cheese, and then add the water, stirring to form a ball. Use enough water to bring in into a ball. I used my hands to work the dough and pull it together in the bowl.
Using two sheets of plastic wrap, or a non-stick baking sheet like Silpat, roll 1/2 of the dough into a rough 1/8" thick rectangle.
Invert the dough onto a greased or parchment lined cookie sheet.
Cut the dough into small squares using a pizza wheel (or use some cute cookie cutters). Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden and crunchy. The length of time this takes greatly depends on the thickness on the dough. If you need to bake longer....no problem!! I actually ended up removing the cookie sheets, re-slicing the dough and gently separating the small par-baked squares and baking them for another 5 minutes to crisp them up!
