Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
In a mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients. Using a pastry blender, two knives or your hands, cut in the fat until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the water and egg and mix until thoroughly incorporated. Knead 2 to 3 minutes. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to a thickness of one-fourth-inch. Use a dog-bone shaped cookie cutter to cut out "bones." Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 25 to 35 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned and firm.
Makes: a lot!
Note: I've also had good luck making these with either butter, rendered chicken fat or lard in place of the bacon fat.
