Semolina sesame rolls

This is from the new book, Bread Alone. I'm not sure how I feel about the book itself yet. It really wants to be The Village Baker. The author has prejudices (about types of yeast, say) which contradict what other books have tested out (that instant yeast actually rises bread faster than active dry yeast, say). But!

But these rolls are little explosions of yumminess. Especially when eaten warm from the oven. So you have to give it credit for that, at least!

UPDATE: Upon further investigation, this book came out the same year as The Village Baker! (1993.) Interesting.
