My mother always makes this at Thanksgiving and sometimes Christmas. It is sweet and thick. I also like it because it is simple to make. It will melt in your mouth and be surprisingly yummy!

This has been a wonderful base recipe. Since I've found it I make it at least once a month. My family goes CRAZY! But i do tweak it. I use about 1/2 the amount of sugar, only 1/2c butter, 1tbsp baking powder and like 3 dashes of cinnamon. The results are a very light and fluffy creation. I've made this for several events from a side dish (less sugar) to a dessert (full amount of sugar). It's been a hit even for people like myself who don't like carrots. I have a friend that I always bring this for dinner at her house and she tried to make it on her own one day and followed the recipe and asked me what she did wrong. Hope this helps!
