Homemade Noodles

1 cup flour
½ tsp. salt
2 large eggs
¼ cup half and half

Combine flour and salt in a bowl.  Make well in center and add eggs and half and half.  Stir with fork until well mixed.  Form into a ball and turn out on lightly floured surface.  Knead 15 minutes, adding flour if needed to make a soft dough.  Cover and let rest 10 minutes.  Divide dough into two portions, covering one portion until other portion has been rolled out.  Roll out each portion until paper thin.  Dust top with flour and fold dough over.  With a sharp knife, cut into strips about ½ inch wide and 2-3 inches long.  Separate noodles and add to chicken soup.  Add to boiling soup until noodles rise to the surface and are tender, about 3-5 minutes.
