Recipe For Flavoured Italian Rolls

I am working my way through my recipe file, and this is the inspiration for my weekly challenges. I loved the look of these rolls and so went ahead and made them, but I did not read the recipe properly and so mixed all the flavours together instead of making 4 different flavoured sets of rolls. I must say, that my version was really great.
