Glazed Carrot Pennies

Robyn Bruce


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!

How to Make Glazed Carrot Pennies


  1. Peel and trim carrots. Cut carrots crosswise into slices one quarter inch thick (so they look like pennies).
  2. Place 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.
  3. Cover saucepan and gently simmer carrots until they are just tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Drain carrots in a colander. Return carrots to saucepan.
  5. Add butter, sugar, salt and spices to carrots in saucepan.
  6. Set 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.
