    This is the exact recipe I've used for decades. It was in my first Betty Crocker cookbook copyright 1969

    This recipe is a keeper. Tastes like the noodles my Grandmother and I use to make together.

    This is how my Grandma taught me to make noodles when I was young. She called the thin rectangles “books” and she was very particular about noodles being the same width when cut. She liked hers very thin. I never could get them cut as evenly as she could. Thanks for sharing and bringing back wonderful memories

    Great noodles. I did it on a pasta machine to number 6 and that seemed like the right thickness. I only let them dry for30 minutes and they seemed perfect. I think drying 2 hrs just makes them easier to handle?

    Why not milk like most traditional egg noodle recipe? Can I ask what difference it makes with water vs. milk, or one egg vs. two? Thanks.
