This recipe came from CopyKat. It's easy to make and is a nice side dish with almost any entree. Another plus is it's a real kid pleaser!

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!
