Ingredients

For the dough

  • 1 teaspoon of active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup of warm water ~100°F
  • 1 teaspoon of granulated sugar
  • 1 cup of pineapple juice
  • 4 ounces of unsalted butter - melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup of light brown sugar - packed
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • Extra flour

For egg wash

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon of water

Instructions

  • Mix warm water with the granulated sugar in a small bowl, sprinkle the yeast in the bowl and let it bloom for 10 - 15 minutes.
  • Add flour, brown sugar and salt in a medium bowl and mix well with a whisk.
  • In the bowl of your stand-mixer, add pineapple juice, melted butter and vanilla extract, mix with a whisk.
  • Now add the flour mixture along with the activated yeast to the liquid mixture in the stand-mixer bowl.
  • Knead with the dough hook on medium speed for 1-2 minutes just until the dough starts to come away from the side of the bowl.
  • Turn dough out on a lightly floured counter, shape into a ball, put it back into the bowl and allow to rise at room temperature overnight or until double in size, this may take a few hours or longer.
  • The next day, or when the dough has risen enough, turn it out on a lightly floured counter again. If the dough stick the the side of the bowl, just use a scraper to get it all out.
  • Divide dough into 15 portions and shape them into round balls.
  • Butter and flour a 9x13 baking dish.
  • Place the dough balls in the baking dish and let them rise for about 2 hours.
  • Prepare egg wash by beating one egg with 1 tablespoon of water.
  • Brush the top of the risen dough with egg wash very lightly.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F, and bake for 18 minutes until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack.
  • Serve rolls warm with butter.
