  • HOT AND SWEET: Cinnamon rolls at Hankins Country Store

There’s something wonderful to be said about those out of the way country stores. Some are just waystations to fill up and feed up; others are places to grab a burger or a snack. And a few become destinations in themselves.

A Facebook fan had keyed me in on Hankins Country Store, an older property at Pelsor along Scenic Seven. There’s been a business going in the store since 1922, but on my last trip up I had noticed the building was empty. This reader had told me I needed to drop in and have myself a bread pudding muffin. Since I’ve been on a breakfast trek this summer, I had to add it to my travels. So when Grav and I hit the road in July to head for Jasper, we planned a stop-in.
