Hawaiian Dinner Rolls

I love the Hawaiian rolls that you buy at the store and was thrilled to find this copycat recipe. These were so delicious and I will definitely be making them again!

Hawaiian Rolls
Recipe from A Homemade Kitchen

1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup melted butter, plus more for brushing
1 tablespoon dry yeast
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
6 tablespoons sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour

Combine water, pineapple juice, and melted butter in a large bowl. Sprinkle in yeast. Add salt, egg, vanilla, and sugar, stir to combine. Using a wooden spoon, mix in the flour 1 cup at a time. Use your hands to mix if the dough becomes too stiff. The dough will be very soft and slightly shaggy. Cover loosely and let rise in a warm spot until doubled in size, about 2 hours.

If baking later, place the covered and risen dough in the fridge overnight before shaping into rolls and baking.

On baking day, spray two 9-inch round cake pans with non-stick spray. Shape the dough into 16 evenly sized balls. If you have a digital scale, use it to size each ball at 1 1/2 ounces. Place 8 balls of dough in each cake pan, cover with a towel, and let rise until doubled in size, about 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Brush the rolls with melted butter. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on rack.
