Make the cookie topping
1. In a bowl, mix softened butter with sugar until smooth.
2. Add 1 egg yolk and vanilla extract, and mix until incorporated.
3. Sift in flour, baking soda, and baking powder.
4. Mix until it becomes a smooth dough.
5. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and roll into an even log.
6. Refrigerate for 20-30 min to allow it to firm up.
7. After 20-30 mins, remove the plastic wrap and cut it into 8 even pieces.
8. Roll each piece into a ball, then press it flat in between plastic wrap until it’s ¼ inch thick.
9. Repeat with the rest.
Bake the pineapple buns
1. Preheat your oven to 375F (convection off).
2. Separate the Hawaiian sweet rolls, and place on a wire rack on a baking tray.
3. Lay a cookie topping on each roll.
4. Using a butterknife, gently indent a crosshatch pattern (optional) but don’t cut all the way through.
5. Whisk or beat an egg in a bowl, and lightly brush the cookie tops with this egg wash.
6. Bake for 13-15 min or until cookie tops are golden.
7. They’re best enjoyed slightly warm.
