Easy as Pie - Egg Noodles

Easy as Pie

I'm a writer, not a cook,
but occasionally, I like to get in the kitchen
and make cookies and such,
as long as the recipe isn't too complicated.

Each Thursday
I hope to share some of my favorite recipes.
If you would like to share an easy recipe,

(This recipe is not very complicated. It just takes a long time.
That makes it all the more special.)

4 large eggs
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. salt
approx. 6 cups white flour

1.Whisk eggs, water, salt, and baking powder.
2.Gradually add 2-3 cups of flour, until it forms a stiff dough.

This recipe has been passed down through my family.
Whenever I have some, I think of my Grandma Grace.
