Yesterday was my annual noodle making marathon. I love to give homemade egg noodles to friends and family at Christmas each year. Everyone makes cookies or specialty breads but no one I know gives homemade noodles.
These are the noodles drying from yesterday, minus some I gifted already this morning. I used a total of 13 1/2 cups of flour in the 4 recipes I made. I may have to make a few more but this might be it for this Christmas. I make noodles occasionally for John and I throughout the year but not in these large quantities.
Last year I wrote about making noodles and gave the recipe I used and you can read that blog post here. The Kitchen Aid noodle attachment is great and I would not be making the volume of noodles without it. Don’t get me wrong…it is still time consuming and a bit of work but nothing like doing all the kneading and cutting by hand.
