These Cinnamon rolls were served in The Mode Tea Room in Boise ID, maybe in the 50's to early 60's. My Mother passed on a story of when she worked in the kitchen as a teen washing dishes one summer. Not her favorite job! She had said that when the baker removed the rolls from the oven she would just put the pans in the sink - no soaking. And of course, my Mother would have to clean them for the next day. Yummy Cinnamon rolls, no so fun for the clean up!
