Max's Fabulous Cinnamon Rolls

Don’t you love how this is one post away from the super healthy smoothie post??

This is a recipe I got from my Mother. I have no idea where she got it from, but it should be a “secret recipe”. Lucky for you- I’m horrible at keeping secrets! If you make these right, I guarantee they will be the best cinnamon rolls you’ve ever had! Please make them on a day that you will be having company or you will get very, very fat.
