Once you start eating this delicious dip, it’s difficult to stop. The smooth texture and sweet carrot flavor go great with the crisp pita wedges. —Alana Rowley, Calgary, Alberta

"I hate to rate this so poorly but I did this exactly as written, and the dip was inedible. I cut the recipe in half, only doing 5 medium carrots. I lowered the time in the oven but even by only doing 18 minutes, then 8 minutes, the carrots got really small and burnt. I don't know what happened. I still tried to make it with the burnt parts (thinking, hey, maybe that's the "roasted" part), but after blending it all together, it just tasted like burnt carrot. If anyone has some insights on what I did wrong, please let me know. It SOUNDS like it would be good."

"This was actually pretty good. My only issue was that I tried to make a smaller batch and it was really hard to deal with in the blender."

"I made this on Saturday to have for lunch with a homemade celery soup. My husband woofed it down with cut wedges of cheese before I could get the pita toasted. I used Tortilla bread instead of the Pita. They were perfect using the same baking instructions.

I modified the recipe for the dip slightly. I cut the recipe in half because I thought it would make too much for just the two of us. Silly me! I left out the water & sugar. I substituted the sour cream with cream cheese. I have already sent this recipe to two of my sisters & two girlfriends. As my husband said, "This is definitely a keeper!""

"We don't care for sweet dips, so I did not add any sugar, but did add a heaping tablespoon prepared horseradish and a heaping tablespoon spicy brown mustard. Yummy. I will serve it next week, so we shall see what the crowd says."

"I'm making it for the second time now! This dip is delicious made just as the recipe reads. I served it at a get together and everyone ranted and raved how good it was.

It might just become my new signature dish to take to parties!"
