Hawaiian Rolls

I looked at several different Hawaiian bread recipes and cobbled together this one. According to my husband, it has a perfect texture and flavor.

Hawaiian Rolls

3 cups warm water
2 eggs, beaten
2 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp almond extract
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup butter
9 cups bread flour
4 tsp yeast

In mixing bowl, with dough hook attached, proof together water, yeast and white sugar for about 10 minutes.

Add in remaining ingredients, except flour. Mix well.

Add flour all at once, and turn on. After dough has formed, add a slight bit more flour, if needed, to keep dough from sticking. Knead for four minutes.

Turn out and allow dough to rest five minutes.

Form rolls and place in greased 9x13's or on baking sheets.

If freezing rolls, they go into the freezer now for a few hours, then into a zippy bag for storage.  To use, place dough balls in greased 9x13 or on a baking sheet and allow to thaw and rise for up to eight hours. Then bake as directed for unfrozen rolls.

Let rolls rise until double.

Bake at 350 for 17 minutes.

Yield: about 4 dozen
