Some 30 years ago, the small church I attended held a chicken and noodles fund-raiser supper. I was put in charge of noodles for 200 people! A dear lady shared this recipe and said it had been tried and tested by countless cooks. These noodles are just plain good eating! —Kathryn Roach, Edgemont, Arkansas

"use 7 eggs, beat on mixer/dough hooks, adding flour gradually til thick, knead til smooth, & not sticking , then roll out very thin-- dry between towels til leathery; cut fine noodles."
