 FOR THE CRUST:
 
 Sift flour and salt together.  Cut in shortening until mixture is like
 coarse sand.  Add water a little at a time until all is moistened and
 pieces cling together.
 
 FOR THE FILLING:
 
 Sauté onions in fat until light yellow.  Add liver and sauté 4 minutes on
 each side.  Put onions, livers, and eggs through a food chopper.  Mix with
 remaining fat left in skillet and salt and pepper.  
 
 Divide dough into thirds and roll very thin into strips 4 inches by 12
 inches.  Lay a bar of liver mixtue down the middle of each strip.  Roll
 half the pastry over it; brush with eggs and cover with other side of
 pastry.  Brush all over with egg and seal ends.  Place on baking sheets and
 bake in 400° oven for 20 minutes.  Cool slightly and cut into ½ inch slices.
