These Italian semolina rolls are almost too good to be true! Quick, easy, and delicious, these rolls are perfect for a quick breakfast on the go or as a side with salad. Our recipe only makes four rolls, but you can easily double or triple the recipe for more rolls.

You'll Need:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup semolina flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2-3 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ stick of butter, melted
  • 2-3 tablespoons cold water



Preheat the oven to 395 degrees F [or 200 degrees C]. Mix all the ingredients until you have formed a smooth dough [you can do this with the dough hook on a mixer or by kneading the dough]. Divide the dough into four pieces, about two inches thick, and places them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 12 to 15 minutes, until they are cooked through and golden brown on the outside [to make them really shiny and golden, consider using an egg wash on the outside of the rolls before you bake them].

Eat while still warm with butter, honey, or jam.
