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.
I made this for chef of the day game and so glad I did! The carrots were delicious. Who knew something so simple would be so good?
I tried these yesterday for Thanksgiving. They were good but I think I still glazed carrots. recipe was very easy!!
Yum! Yum! These carrots are wonderful...perfectly sweet and buttery -- a definite kid-pleaser! I made them to accompany the
Easy to make. I think my carrots were old so I had to add more sugar to get them sweet.
Add some nutmeg it will add flavor. My kids hate Carrots but once they tried these, They ask for them all the time, Sometime just for a snack.
This is an okay recipe. Nothing really wrong with it. But, by leaving some water in the pan, it dilutes the flavour of the butter, salt & sugar.
