This is the homemade noodles Mom always made when I was growing up. For our family she had to double this.
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 teaspoon shortening
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons cream (or half & half)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 cup flour, approximately
- Mix well and add enough sifted flour to make a soft dough that doesn't stick when you roll it out.
- Roll very thin.
- Dust with flour.
- Roll up and cut into noodles.
- Unroll cut noodles.
- Sprinkle a little flour over noodles before putting them into broth to cook.
- Spread (or hang on noodle dryer) out to dry; store in air tight container.
- Check for doneness by testing a noodle to see if the center is cooked completely through. There should be no dryness in the center of the noodles.
I loved these noodles. They really are no-fail noodles - I rolled them out a little too thick,and then got distracted while I was boiling them in broth, but despite all that - they STILL turned out delicious. Once the noodles were prepared, I droppd them into boiling chicken broth and let them cook like pasta for about 15-20 minutes. They were wonderful and I can't wait to try them again - I think they will taste great with beef stronganoff ladled on top. Next time, to save time, I may run the dough through my pasta maker.
Tried this after another recipe failed me, and although the directions were a bit vague as to what order to put things in the bowl, the noodles were great! Let them dry for about three hours because of the humidity in the air today, and boiled them in some vegetable stock to pair with Wild Mushroom Stroganoff. They soaked up the flavour of the broth and the sauce wonderfully, and they were quite easy to make! The only caveat here is the serving size. I made a double batch, and it was barely enough for two, let alone four to six, so plan accordingly to the number of people, their appetites, and the inevitable desire for seconds.
I made this recipe last night and everyone loved it. I cooked the noodles in chicken stock (canned) and added salt and pepper and it turned out simply delicious. I had never attempted to make noodles before and these came out light and very tasty. Thanks Cindy Lynn for the delicious recipe. Will definitely be making again and again.
