Transfer semolina to a clean work surface. Make a well in the center and slowly pour the water into the well as you stir it in with a fork. knead with your hands for approx. 5 min., until you have smooth dough. Transfer to a bowl and cover with a damp kitchen towel. Let rest for approx. 30 min.
After the dough has rested, take a small piece of it and roll out with your hands into strands about 1.5 cm/1/2 in. thick. Cut a 1.5 cm/1/2 in. piece with a knife, and then drag the butter knife over the piece of dough to make a roll. Turn the piece over and invert onto your thumb to shape the orecchiette. Repeat with remaining dough and place the finished orecchiette on a large tray sprinkled with extra semolina. Cook immediately for approx. 2 min. in boiling, salted water or let dry and store. Enjoy!
