Just got back from KY where we went to Cracker Barrel and HAD to have those delicious carrots again. I did as others said and used BROWN sugar which made it more like the original, but I had to double the sugar to make it as sweet as CB. It had too much of a butter flavor otherwise. Really yummers though!

I left out the sugar, but they turned out great! My picky two-year-old (and husband) gobbled them up.

I too used to waitress at Cracker Barrel for several years, and I happen to know that they use brown sugar instead of plain sugar. Makes it a little sweeter.
