Prep Time: 40 minutes
Bake Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 3 cups

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 
1 teaspoon salt 
1/2 cup cool water (68 degrees F) 
1 beaten egg

Instructions

1. In medium bowl, sift flour and salt together. Beat together cool water and egg; stir into flour mixture until well combined. 

2. Knead dough until smooth and elastic, about 5 to 8 minutes. Cover with a wet cheesecloth or towel for 30 minutes. 

3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out into a thin sheet, about 1/6-inch thick. With sharp knife, cut into 1/8-inch-wide strips for fine noodles, 1/3-inch-wide strips for broad noodles. If you have a noodle cutter, cut immediately. Separate by lightly tossing with a dusting of flour. 

4. Noodles may be used immediately or frozen in a sealed container or bag. 

5. To cook fresh noodles, bring 10 to 12 cups water or broth to boil; gradually add noodles. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 12 to 15 minutes.
