An old family recipe from St. John Lutheran Church member, Lillie Kauitzsch, Bartlett, Texas. A much better taste than store bought. I also remember my great-grandmother making noodles like this when I visited her in Oklahoma, many moons ago. Preparations time is an estimate.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat the egg yolks with the whole egg until very light.
  2. Beat in the salt and water.
  3. Stir in the flour and work with hands until blended.
  4. Divide dough into 2 parts.
  5. Roll out each part as thin as possible on a lightly floured board.
  6. Let stand until partially dry (like chamois skin), at least 1 hour, then roll up like a jelly roll and cut into strips of any desired width.
  7. Shake out strips and allow them to finish drying before using or storing them.

My mother made this type of noodle and I do too. The only difference in her recipe was she used milk (no water) and she also added a little baking powder.
