Recipe Notes

If you want this dessert to have a consistency more like porridge serve it hot or don't let it thicken that much when cooking.

Otherwise, let it cool down and put it in the fridge the consistency becomes more similar to pudding.

Pro tip:
In case you like to add some fruits, I'd recommend adding them when the pudding is done already.
Red berry compote goes great with it and you can easily prepare it by heating up frozen berries in a pot, adding some water & gelatin and boiling it until it thickens.  Then, let it cool down. Holds in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.

You may also try out one of the other optional ingredients, a combination of them or leaving out the cinnamon. I only sprinkled some cacao powder on top here and mixed it in with the spoon afterwards.

  1. First, cut the kidneys in half and remove the gristly white centers (the fat) carefully

  2. It is best to use a paring knife for this. Remove as much of it as possible and keep it if you want to make tallow - more details in the recipe notes

  3. After that, cut the kidney meat into bite sized pieces that and put them into a strainer. When finished, thoroughly rinse them with cold water for a few minutes
  4. Now, add the salt to a big bowl, add some water and stir until the salt is dissolved. Then, add the kidney pieces and so much cold water that they are completely covered

  5. Cover the bowl with cling film / plastic wrap, put it into the fridge and let the kidneys soak in water for at least 2 hours. After that, take the pieces out of the water, into a clean strainer and rinse them with fresh water again. Afterwards, let them drip off excess water for a minute
  6. Melt the butter in a pan on low heat, add the kidney pieces and cook them for about 7 minutes while stirring occasionally.

  7. Then, put them to the side (e.g. into a soup plate) in order to make the sauce in the pan

  1. After cooking the kidney pieces, leave any remaining liquid in the pan and add the extra butter. Then, add the sliced onions and let them cook for about 5 minutes

  2. Next, add the cream & cream cheese to the pan and stir until it is dissolved. Cook for about 10 minutes on low heat, until the sauce starts to thicken. Now is the time to taste the sauce and add salt & pepper to your preferences
  3. Finally, add the kidney pieces back to the pan and let them simmer in the sauce for another 3 minutes on low heat. Don't cook too long or on higher heat as the kidney tends to become chewy then

Recipe Notes

If you want to render the kidney fat cut it into small bits or mince it in a food processor.
Then, put it into a pot or big pan on low heat and wait for all the fat to get out while stirring occasionally.

You can see that it's done when there is clear fat on the bottom with crispy bits on top.

Now, you can remove these floating bits by pouring all content through a cheesecloth or fabric into another pot.
When the fat is cooled, pour it into mason jars and keep them in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

You may also add a pinch of cinnamon or some pure cacao powder to the dough if you like.
For the cacao, I'd recommend using 1-2 teaspoons.

Another way to modify these cookies is adding about 1 tablespoon of low carb chocolate chips to the dough right in the beginning, simply sprinkle some on top before baking or making a chocolate frosting after the cookies are baked and cooled down.
