Hawaiian Rolls

Hawaiian Sweet Rolls

  • Author: Fluffy


One of my favorite things to make as a side dish for family dinner is Hawaiian sweet rolls. They really add incredible flavor to any meal and are a fantastic buttery complement to any meat dish. Add some grass fed butter to these to really add some caloric depth to your meal.

This recipe makes about 16 rolls so you will have an abundant amount for the whole family, which is great because they will go fast!
