Recipe - Dog Treat Special

1 lb  raw beef liver sliced
3 cups water
1 cup self-rising cornmeal mix or rice flour
1/4 cup quick cooking oatmeal
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tbsp. canola oil
1 egg beaten

Preheat oven till350 degrees
Boil liver in 3 cups of water till it's no longer pink.
Remove liver and set aside boiled water.
Place 1/4 cup of the reserved water and the liver in a food processor and puree.
In a large bowl, combine the cornmeal mix, oatmeal, wheat and all-purpose flours, garlic powder and brown sugar. Add oil, egg, liver puree and 1/4 cup of reserved liver water. Mix well.
On waxed paper roll out the dough to 1/2 inch thickness for large treats and 1/4 inch thickness for small biscuits. Using a cookie cutter, press out biscuits and place them on a greased (or parchment paper lined) cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, flip and bake for 10 more minutes turn off the oven and return the treats to the cooling oven. Let sit for 2.5 hours to make treats extra crunchy. Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 2 wks.
This recipe makes 3 to 5 dozen healthy dog treats.
