2 cups (about) all-purpose flour,
sifted before measuring
4 egg yolks
3 tablespoons cold water
1 teaspoon salt
Place sifted flour in mixing bowl. With a fork, make a well in center of flour. Beat egg yolks slightly and add water and salt to them. With the fork, start blending the ingredients together. When the fork has gone as far as it can, begin working ingredients with fingertips until ingredients are well blended.
Remove dough from bowl to a floured board and knead mixture. Divide dough into 3 parts. Roll each section as thin as possible (no thicker than a piece of paper). When the 3 portions have been rolled, place on clean tea towel to dry. The rolled dough must not be sticky, neither must it be brittle.
When partially dry, sprinkle lightly with flour and roll up like a jelly roll. Be quite gentle when you roll the dough and don't press down hard. With a very sharp knife, cut roll into strips from 1/16 inch wide up to 3 inches, depending upon how you wish to use them. Shake out each piece as you cut it. Allow to dry.
These homemade noodles are delicious!
