Cinnamon Buns and Sun Tea
Paul and I are in Branson Missouri. Branson is situated at the very bottom of Missouri in the Ozark Mountains. The City was incorporated in 1912, has a population of over 10,000 and was name after Reuben Branson. The City is famous for the many musical theaters located there. This is a good time to visit Branson if you decide to take a road trip as September is considered a slow month.
Grandma Ruth was born in Saskatchewan where she lived until she met her husband a Baptist Preacher and moved to the USA. Her youngest son worked setting up the sound and lighting for musical acts in Branson and one day was asked who could provide pastry for a coffee concession, he offered up his mother's cinnamon buns: Grandma Ruth's business was started. A little shyly Grandma Ruth offered that she is not sure why her sons named the business of her. Grandma Ruth makes cinnamon buns using her own sweet yeast recipe and has added to the menu caramel dipped cinnamon buns. She makes her own brown sugar and butter caramel sauce to pour over her buns and while we were there she was asked to make two dozen sugar cookies for pick up.
|Grandpa John taught me that all good pastry is better dunked in good coffee|
