Alma Bakery Sweet Treat In Flint Hills

When I stepped inside the Alma Bakery & Sweet Shoppe the aroma took me back to my mother’s kitchen as she pulled homemade rolls out of the oven. I ordered a glazed-topped cinnamon roll that had a fluffy, soft texture and just the right amount of cinnamon throughout. My favorite purchase, though, was the cherry turnover.  With extremely light, flaky and buttery layers, the pastry had an outer crunch, a fruity center, and sweet icing on top. It truly was melt-in-my-mouth delicious!

Floating on a Sea of Grass

Road through flint hillsA drive along the Flint Hills National Scenic Byway carries visitors back to a different time. Imagine being alone in the middle of a vast ocean. Only this is no ordinary sea.
