Hawaiian Dinner Rolls

In my quest to find just the right bun for my Pineapple BBQ Beef Sliders, it didn't take me long to realize that a recreation of those Hawaiian rolls from the store would be perfect. I googled a few recipes and realized they were pretty similar to the rolls I already make, just a little sweeter and a couple of surprise ingredients; pineapple juice and vanilla!

These rolls are absolutely delicious!  Soft and chewy and make a perfect bun for the Pineapple Barbecue.

Hawaiian Dinner Rolls
3 cups flour
6 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. yeast
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 egg
6 oz. can of pineapple juice (3/4 cup)
1/4 cup warm water (plus an additional 2-3 Tablespoons, if necessary)

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, add the flour, sugar, salt and yeast.   Pulse a time or two to combine.  Add the rest of the ingredients.  Mix on medium speed for about a minute.  If the dough looks too dry, add more water, a tablespoon at a time. Mix for 5 minutes.  Dough will be tacky but not too sticky.

Place dough in an oiled bowl, cover and let rise until doubled, anywhere from 1-2 hours.  Gently deflate dough and divide into 12 equal balls.  Place in an oiled 9x13 pan.  Cover lightly with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap sprayed with non-stick spray.  Let raise until doubled.

Preheat over to 350 degrees F. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool in pan for 10 minutes then remove to a wire rack and cool completely.
