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!

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.
