In a large bowl, combine the semolina flour, flour, salt, and softened butter. Mix until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs.

Mix and whisk the egg whites and water until well combined. Then add the egg mixture to the flour mixture, and mix until it forms.

Once you're done kneading, cover and let the dough rest. Preheat the oven and roll out the half dough using a rolling pin.

Once the dough is rolled in thin sheets, cut them into circles using a round cookie cutter for about 3- 3.5 inches in diameter.

Step 4

Prepare the filling and combine the ricotta cheese, saffron water, sugar, egg yolks, lemon zest, and orange zest. Beat until smooth and creamy.

Step 5

Sift the flour over the filling mixture and mix until well combined. Spoon the filling and add to the center of each dough disk.

Pinch the edges of each filled disk and repeat the process with the rest of the shell. Bake the Pardulas and let them cook on a wire rack.
