Homemade Egg Noodles by Geraldine

Recipe by BakinBaby

This comes down the pike though at least 100 years of noodle makin' here in Southern Indiana. Geraldine was quite the cook and her noodles were known Statewide. Enjoy the journey.

I cannot rate this,since it didn't work out for me. And I so wanted it to be able to make it. I increased the flour to one cup and after one hour it still wasn't dry. I placed it in the refrigerator to be easier to work with.Maybe I did something wrong,since I couldn't cut it in nice stripes and the dough was kind of soft. I omitted the food coloring. We ended up with snake like looking noodles,which we cooked in a soup and my DDs enjoyed their "snake soup".When they'll open their zaar account I'm sure they'll rate this five stars.I'll have to give this another try.
