    quart cold water

    smooth and no longer sticks to the spoon.� Add water as needed.� The
    spaetzle dough can be firm enough to be rolled and cut into slivers or soft
    enough to be forced through a sieve, colander or spaetzle-maker with large
    holes. Boil a pot of salted water.� If you have a Spaetzle press, press the
    dough through the press and into the boiling water.� If you do not have a
    press, place dough on cutting board and roll out.� Cut dough into tiny noodles.
    � Add noodles to boiling water. They cook quickly and are done when they float
    to the surface.� As the noodles finish cooking, remove them with a slotted
    spoon. You can saute' the noodles in a Tbsp. of butter before serving.� Other
    suggestions:� Serve with brown gravy or beef stock. If you do not want to use
    the egg yolks, use the egg whites and add some yellow food coloring for color.
