Aunt Sue's Noodles

(by Heidi Mender)


2 whole eggs

2 egg yolks

dash of salt

2 c. flour, approximately

Beat eggs and egg yolks well, adding a dash of salt.

Stir in enough flour to form a ball.

Divide dough in half and roll out on a floured surface with a floured rolling pin, adding more flour if necessary to keep from sticking.

With a sharp knife, slice thinly.

Set aside on a floured surface to dry, at least 1 hour. (You can freeze extras.)

Drop noodles in boiling chicken or beef broth, reduce heat to medium, and cook, stirring often, until al dente.
