Homemade cut noodles

Grandma used to make her own noodles. We’d come into her house at holiday time and, amongst the containers of fragrant hoska, beigli,  and miscellaneous cookies she had ready for us, there’d often be a tray of hand-cut noodles sprinkled with flour. We knew they were being readies for some of our favorite dishes, like Cabbage Noodles or Cottage Cheese Noodles (no Italian-style pasta for us back then!)

Ingredients for homemade hand-cut noodles

  • 6 cups flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • salt
  • water

Mix flour, salt, and eggs. Add enough water to hold dough together without it being sticky. Cover and let rest for a while. Roll thin and let dry. Cut in strips and flour. (Very good for cabbage noodles)
