Homemade German Noodles

As I look back into my childhood, I have many wonderful memories. My grandmother, Agnes Obenhaus, was an amazing cook. And she shared her wisdom and experience of cooking with my mom.

One of our favorite things that she made was homemade German noodles. She made them every year for the holidays as far back as I can remember. She has been gone for many years now, but her noodles live on. My parents have carried on this tradition ever since. All of the family loves them and would be very disappointed if they were to not be present for our holiday meal!

This year my daughter wanted to learn to make them, so we spent the afternoon making the dough, rolling it out, cutting the noodles and hanging them to dry. We had four generations together making homemade German noodles to share with the family on Thanksgiving.

2/3 cup flour 
1 egg
1 T water 
1/2 t salt 
1 t oil

Make a well of flour. Barely mix egg, water, salt and oil. Add to flour and mix with hands until it forms a ball. Knead for 10 min. Let stand covered 1 hour. Pinch off and run thru 2 or 3 times to make thin. Then use slice attachment and hang to dry. 

We want to thank Rhonda Bain for sharing this post.
