Simple and delicious, the addition of the triple sec lifts it to a special level.

These were very tasty, I cut the recipe to one serving and enjoyed about half then my DH ate the rest so the serving size is generous. I found the tiny pinch of nutmeg to be just right as a compliment to the orange. The only thing I would change would be to use less butter, there was quite a bit left in the bottom of the dish and it seemed like the glaze would have clung more if it were less buttery. I nice change from our usual veggies! Made for Newest Zaar Tag

This was really good. I used baby carrots. This would be perfect for special occasions like Christmas and Thanksgiving. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
