Mix 5 cups flour, yeast, and salt on low speed until combined, Slowly add pineapple juice mixture, followed by brown sugar, egg, vinegar, and vanilla and knead until dough starts to pull away from the bowl. Continue to knead for another 8 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic.

  4. Work with dough on a floured surface and cut into 18 roughly even pieces then shape into balls. Place them in a greased 9×13 cake pan and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise at room temperature until doubled in size, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  5. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 375 degrees. Remove plastic and brush rolls with approximately 1 1/2 tablespoons butter. Bake until golden brown, about 20 – 23 minutes. Let rolls cool in dish on wire rack for 10 minutes then brush with remaining butter and serving immediately.
