I’ve heard nothing but great things about homemade noodles, but, aside from spaetzle, had never made them. But they’re really easy and not very time consuming! Egg noodles were a breeze and I plan to make them again soon. I ate them with a chicken stew that I should be posting soon. :)
Homemade egg noodles
from Stolen Moments
2 c. flour
1 t. salt
1 egg yolk
2 T. cold water + 1-2 T. more
Heap the flour in a shallow bowl or on a cutting board; sprinkle salt over flour. Make a well in the middle of the flour. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg yolk, and 2 T. water. Pour the eggs in the middle of the flour well and carefully cut in flour, starting with the outside edges.
Use your hands to form the dough into a ball and knead 10-15 times. Add water by the teaspoon if absolutely necessary, but you want a stiff dough- not tacky. Roll out on a lightly floured surface until desired thickness- I made mine thick, between 1/4 and 3/8 inch.
Roll up the dough like rolling a jelly roll. Cut 1/4 inch slices all across the length. Unwind carefully; cut to desired length. Lay out to let dry for at least 20 minutes before boiling.
