"It seems there are so many versions of this carrot dish out there. If you want to add an extra bit of sweetness, I think a really good maple syrup drizzled over the tops of the cooked carrots would really coax out even more of the sweet flavor of the carrots."

"My 9 year old requested carrots this year as they are the only vegetable she likes, so I hunted for a good recipes-the carrots had to be coin shaped. I am so glad I found this recipe as everyone commented on the carrots and thanked our daughter for requesting them. This recipe will be added to our holiday meals menu."
