With mixer on low speed, add butter, one cube at a time, beating until combined after each addition. Beat until dough is elastic and smooth, 8 to 10 minutes.Spray a large bowl with cooking spray. Place dough in bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place (75°F/24°C) until doubled in size, 2 to 2½ hours. (Alternatively, cover and refrigerate dough overnight. Let it come to room temperature and then let rise in a warm, draft-free place [75°F/24°C] until doubled in size, 2 to 2½ hours, before proceeding.)Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Spray 2 large sheets of plastic wrap with cooking spray.Lightly punch down dough. Cover and let stand for 10 to 15 minutes. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface, and divide into 12 portions (about 74 grams each). Using the palm of your hands, gently shape each portion into a round, smooth ball, lightly flouring your hands as needed. Place 3 to 4 inches apart on prepared pans. Cover with plastic wrap, spray side down, and let rise in a warm, draft-free place (75°F/24°C) until doubled in size, 1½ to 2 hours.Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).Place Coconut Pastry Cream in a pastry bag fitted with a medium round piping tip.Using your fingers or a ¼-cup measuring cup, gently press an indentation into center of each bun.
