Glazed Carrot Pennies

This is my favorite carrot recipe of all time. It almost tastes like "Thanksgiving" sweet potatoes to me. I just love them. If you don't think there's enough glaze in the pan, just add double the amount of the butter and brown sugar, and add a little more of the cinnamon and nutmeg. Just a dash or so. I hope you enjoy this!

2 Tbsp
butter
1 Tbsp
brown sugar
1/4 tsp

dash of ground cinnamon
dash of ground nutmeg

Step-By-Step

1Peel and trim carrots. Cut carrots crosswise into slices one quarter inch thick (so they look like pennies).
2Place carrot slices in a medium-sized saucepan. Add about one inch of water to saucepan. Set saucepan over high heat and bring water to a boil. Reduce heat.
3Cover saucepan and gently simmer carrots until they are just tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
4Drain carrots in a colander. Return carrots to saucepan.
5Add butter, sugar, salt and spices to carrots in saucepan.
6Set saucepan over medium heat and cook mixture, stirring constantly, until butter and sugar are melted and form a glaze on carrots, about 4 minutes. Serve immediately.
