"These simple and easy to prepare carrots are so delicious, you will find yourself going back for a second helping! They are great for the holidays as they serve a lot of people. However, you can easily half or quarter the recipe with great results too. Make sure you cook the carrots barely to al dente (until they can just be pierced with a knife or fork). You don't want to overcook them, or they will be mushy."

What an easy and tasty way to make carrots! I cut this down to two servings and it was perfect for us. I'll definitely keep this in mind for future carrot excess.

Quick and easy to put together, these are delicious little gems!!! I only used half the butter and these still turned out nicely. A must make again very soon.
