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!

Step-by-Step

  • 1Peel and trim carrots. Cut carrots crosswise into slices one quarter inch thick (so they look like pennies).

  • 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.
