Hawaiian Rolls

This recipe is unique. I made it with some Hawaiian Haystacks and LOVED the results. I found the recipe here.

Before baking

After baking - note that not all of the coconut milk was absorbed. This is normal - at least it was for me - and it was delicious!

Hawaiian Rolls:
6 cups flour
1 packet – or 1 1/2 tsp. yeast
2 1/4 cups + 2 tbsp. of milk
1 tbsp. sugar + 1 cup sugar for mixing with coconut milk later
1 teaspoon salt
1 tbsp. butter – or margarine, Crisco
2 cans of coconut milk
Measure about 2 1/2-3 cups of flour and your yeast into your bread machine or a large mixing bowl. In a saucepan add your milk, sugar, salt and butter. On medium low heat continue to cook until butter is almost completely melted. You may test your liquid if you like, but be sure it is not much over about 100 degrees F. We don’t want to kill our yeast, do we? When butter is almost completely melted, add your warm milk mixture to your flour mixture and combine. Add remaining flour gradually to make a smooth dough. Knead for about 6-8 minutes.
Butter your hands and butter a bowl for your dough to rise. Rub that butter all over your dough and set it covered in its greased bowl for about 45 minutes to rise.
After 45 minutes punch dough down and form into little dough balls, placing them into 2 greased 13 by 9 pans. This recipe will make at least 18 rolls depending on the size. Put 9 rolls per pan and let your rolls rise for about 20 minutes. Mix your coconut milk with 1 cup sugar and pour over your rolls. (I only used 1 can and 1/2 cup sugar and I had plenny but if you want to make it extra good then mix it all up!) Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes or until they test done.
