Today I share a recipe from my grandmother that I absolutely love. They are pineapple rolls and are delicious. My grandmother used to take these rolls everywhere.
3-3 ½ cups all purpose flour
¼ cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 pkg. active dry yeast
½ cup water
½ cup milk
¼ cup butter
Filling: 1-8 oz. can crushed pineapple
2 T. Cornstarch
1/3 cup sugar
Glaze: 1 cup powdered sugar
2 T. butter
1 T. milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
In small pan, cook pineapple, cornstarch and sugar until thick. This could take 10-15 minutes. Let cool.
In large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, sugar, salt and yeast; blend well. In small saucepan, heat water, milk and ¼ cup butter until very warm (120 to 130 degrees) Add warm liquid and egg to flour mixture. Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed. By hand, stir in an additional 1 1/2 cup flour until dough pulls cleanly away from sides of bowl.
On floured surface, knead in 1 ¼ -1 ½ cups flour until dough is smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Place dough in greased bowl; cover loosely with plastic wrap and cloth towel. Let rise in warm place (80 to 85 degrees) until light and doubled in size, about 45-60 minutes.
Punch down dough several times to remove all air bubbles. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough into 18 x 12 rectangle. Spread with cooled pineapple mixture. Starting with 18 inch side, roll up tightly, pressing edges to seal. Cut into 18 slices, place slices, cut side down, in greased pan. Cover, let rise in warm place until light and doubled in size, about 35-45 minutes.
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Uncover dough. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. In small bowl, blend powdered sugar, butter, milk and vanilla for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm rolls. Serve warm.
Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do.
Merry Christmas to All.
