These worked out great! I used liver and added the cooking water instead of plain water, and used lard instead of oil. To save my sore wrist I rolled the dough into a log and cut it into rounds. The cookies were a big hit. I especially appreciate the tip on long slow baking to dry them out. Mine took longer--cut them too thick, I guess--so I turned off the oven and left them in overnight. I wish I lived near you, I'd buy all those homegrown beef livers. Yum!
