Kicked up Carrots

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by bonita_colombia

A twist on the traditional cooked carrots. I needed something quick to put in my wife's lunch for the next day and suddenly came up with this brainstorm. We both loved the flavor. I don't measure when I make new recipies and this is a doubled version meant to serve two people since the orignal was whipped together for one person, so adjust these measurements to suit your own taste.

These are very easy to make. I loved the cayenne brown sugar kick!! I could not use the raisins this time, as my son ate all of them. I used 1/2 of the butter the recipe called for. I'll be making this again with the raisins. But it is nice to know it is a winner even without them. Made for *Zaar Cookbooks Tag 2009* game
