Hawaiian Dinner Rolls

Here is the roll recipe that I talked about the other night.
It's a dinner roll but it is made with pineapple juice so it's got some sweetness to it.

I found this recipe several years ago and have just now gotten around to actually trying it. I thought it was a bit odd to add the yeast after mixing the dough but in the end it worked.

They remind me of the Hawaiian rolls that you can buy in an orange bag. I can't think of the brand name but I usually find them sitting in front of the deli case.

Hawaiian Dinner Rolls

3 cups flour
1 egg
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 pkg. yeast
1/2 stick butter, melted

Beat the egg.
Add pineapple juice, sugar, vanilla and butter to the egg.
Add flour and mix.
Next add the yeast & mix well.
Leave dough in bowl and cover it with a towel.
Place in a warm spot and let rise for 1 hour.
Remove towel and punch dough down.
Pinch off small amounts of dough and gently roll into balls.
*I made 13 rolls in total.*
Place rolls in a greased 13 X 9.
Cover again with a towel and place in a warm spot for another hour.
Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes.

I didn't have pineapple juice but I did have a can of pineapple tidbits so here is what I did.
I drained the pineapple juice from the tidbits and got exactly one cup of juice that I used in the rolls.
I used the remaining pineapple and mixed it with a few things that I had on hand and came up with a pineapple fluff.

Quick Pineapple Fluff

2 (8oz.) cream cheese, softened
20 oz. pineapple tidbits, drained
3/4 to 1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows

Mix all together enjoy!

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend.
I'm tired from shopping all day so I'm heading to the couch to watch a bit of tv and sew a little before bedtime.
I'll be back on Monday with a few more cookie recipes.

We tried Hawaiian bread at a bible school a couple of years ago and my kids just loved it. I'm going to have to try this one.
