I am so excited to finally get this recipe on the blog. I have been making these noodles for over twenty years. When I first started making them I used a tall drinking glass as my rolling pin.

These are the ingredients needed.

These noodles are my family’s absolute favorite thing I make. They often want these for their birthday and we have had them on many holidays, especially Christmas.

The eggs in the well of flour, the dough mixed up, and the dough cut into 4 equal pieces.

They are easy and very inexpensive to make (especially when you compare the cost to that of the packaged kind). You can use these noodles in any recipe that calls for egg noodles, making  them very versatile. They can be made thick or thin, wide or narrow, depending on the capacity you are going to use them, or just because you prefer them one way or another.

A one-fourth piece rolled out, the dough folded into thirds, and the dough cut into noodles.

They dry and cook faster if they are thin. But they are very tasty, however you make them. They do take up quite a bit of counter space when they are drying.

  • Prep Time: 30m
  • Cook Time: 30m
  • Total Time: 1h
  • Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour, plus additional as needed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup water

Instructions

  1. Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in center of flour. Add egg yolks, whole egg, and water; mix thoroughly. If dough is too sticky, mix in enough flour to make dough easy to handle. If dough is too dry, mix in enough water to make dough easy to handle.
  2. Divide dough into 4 equal parts. Roll one-fourth of dough at a time on a lightly floured surface, into a rectangle. Loosely fold rectangle lengthwise into thirds. Cut crosswise into strips 1/8 to 1/2 inch wide, as desired. Lay noodles in a single layer to dry on paper towels for at least 30 minutes, and up to 3 hours.
  3. Break into smaller pieces and cook in boiling water or in soup for 20-30 minutes. The thicker the noodles the longer they will take to cook. Note: The preparation time does not include drying time.

      They taste so much better than the store bought variety and are so much cheaper. Perhaps people think it is harder than it really is. Thanks!
