  • Total Time
    Prep: 40 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    2-1/2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1-1/2 cups warm whole milk (110° to 115°)
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 6 to 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • FILLING:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange zest
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice

Directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add the milk, butter, sugar, salt, eggs and 1-1/3 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface, knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually add orange juice. Stir in remaining filling ingredients. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; cool.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll each half into a 15x12-in. rectangle. Spread filling evenly over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 1-in. rolls. Place with cut side down into two greased 13x9-in. baking pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes. Cool. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over rolls.
