Homemade Noodles

March is National Noodle Month so I thought this would be fine time to talk about Gramsy's Homemade Noodles. I vividly remember the time she let me cut the noodles when I was probably 5 or 6 years old. Gramsy cut the dough into about six sections then stacked them. She gave me this huge brown knife and instructed me  to slice  thin strips. Well, I proceeded to slice right across my thumb!  I yelped and she grabbed a towel. We went out to the sink in the back room and pumped cold water on my hand.

2 cups flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
3 large eggs
1/8 cup milk (2 TBSPs)

Put all ingredients in food processor. Pulse until in ball form. Rest 20 minutes, covered.  Roll into large thin piece. Cut into rectangular sections; stack them, cut noodles using lots of flour.  Let set for an hour or dry overnight. Cook in salted boiling water or in chicken or beef broth for 5 - 10 minutes.

Gramsy made corrections to the recipe in my mom's cookbook
