Homemade Noodles

Recipe Courtesy of Emilee Aardema
and My Mom


My mom always makes the most delicious homemade noodles in her homemade chicken noodle soup. Thanks to a friend of a friend, I finally have a measured recipe for noodles just like hers! (This baker needs measurements!)

2 cups flour
2 eggs
1 teaspoon oil
2-3 Tablespoons water

Bring soup to a rolling boil in prep for noodles.

Mix together all ingredients with a fork. It won't mix perfectly; it is similar to a moist pie crust. Don't overwork it or the noodles will be tough.

Roll out on a generously floured surface to slightly thinner than pie crust--if you roll paper thin the noodles won't hold up.

Run a pizza cutter (or knife) through the dough to make long 1/4 inch strips. Drop one by one into the boiling soup. They cook super fast.......5-7 minutes.

I LOVE home made noodles! I converted my husband as well. This looks about the same as the recipe I make. Although it looks like you actually try to make your noodles even! ;)

Well, my noodles weren't quite as pretty as these. My "photographer" (the hubby) wasn't able to take a picture so I borrowed this pic from another site (I credited them with the link), because every recipe needs a photo!

OMG - I never even thought of making my own noodles. I bet it makes a soup so, so special! Thanks for sharing.
