Sift two cups of flour with three teaspoons of salt in it, make into a
dough by adding enough sweet milk to make soft as biscuit dough. Break
off small pieces and roll between the hands in the shape of croquettes.
Now put one-half cup of rendered butter in a skillet that has a top to
it; when the butter is hot, lay in the pieces of dough (do not put too
many in at one time), throw in one-half cup of cold water, put on the
cover and let cook until the water is cooked out and noodles are brown
on one side. Remove the cover and brown on the other side.
