    1. In a food processor, pulse Cheetos until finely ground. Alternatively, place in a zip-top bag, seal and crush with a rolling pin. 
    2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, half of the crushed Cheetos, cream of tartar, salt, baking soda, and crumbled bacon.
    3. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, shortening, and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add egg and food coloring, if using, and mix until creamy. Add the dry ingredients, and stir until just combined.
    4. Place the remaining Cheetos crumbs and granulated sugar into a shallow bowl. Using a small cookie scoop, make tablespoon-sized dough balls. Roll into a ball in your hands and then roll in the crumbs. Place balls on a tray or plate. Cover and refrigerate the dough for at least 1 hour or overnight.
    5. Preheat the oven 350 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
    6. Place cookies on a pan 2 inches apart and bake for 8-12 minutes. Allow cooling for 5 minutes before transferring Cheetos Cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy Cheetos Cookies!
