Ingredients

Unsifted flour 2 1/2 Cup (40 tbs)
Eggs 3
Cold water 1 Tablespoon
Salt 1/2 Teaspoon

Directions

MAKING

1 In a deep bowl, mix 2 cups of the flour and the salt.

2 Create a well in the center and add the eggs and water.

3 Using your fingers or a spoon, gradually mix the dry ingredients together.

4 Blend the mixture and gather it into a ball.

5 Knead the dough on a board in the bowl, by pushing it down with the heels of your hands, pressing it forward and folding it back.

6 Incorporate up to 1/2 cup more flour, sprinkling it over the ball and adding only enough to make a firm dough.

7 Knead for about 10 minutes.

8 Gather the dough into a ball, and place it on a floured board or table.

9 Using the heel of your hand, press it into a circle about 1 inch thick.

10 Dust a little flour over and under it and roll it out from the center to within an inch of the far edge.

11 Lift the dough and turn it about 2 inches.

12 Roll again from the center to the far edge.

13 Repeat-€”lifting, turning, rolling-€”until the circle is almost paper thin.

14 If the dough sticks to the board or table, using a metal spatula and sprinkle a little flour under it, lift it gently

15 To make potpie squares, cut the dough into 2-inch squares using a small sharp knife or a pastry wheel.

16 On a piece of wax paper, place the squares in one layer.

17 Slice the dough into 1/4-inch-wide strips with a pastry wheel or long sharp knife.

18 The noodles are now ready to be cooked at or cover tightly with plastic wrap and keep in the refrigerator for a day.
