Yum...were these good Lazy. It never fails to amaze me how a few ingredients can make something so tasty. The carrots were tender and sweet and the dressing was perfect. Loved the zing from the stone ground coarse dijon mustard that I used...Thank you for sharing a recipe that we will enjoy again and again. Made FYC Tag Game 2015.

Wonderful! I also used less butter than called for; a little less sugar, too. Thanks - made for your Football win, 2014

I am suprised at the flavor of this dish! I only had a tiny bit over 2 tbls of butter, but it still worked out. Sprinkled black and white sesame seeds on top for color.
