Contest-Winning Glazed Carrot Coins

These glossy carrots, flavored with orange juice, cinnamon and ginger, are pretty enough for a special meal. To save time, you could substitute two 15-ounce cans of carrots for the fresh ones. —Helen Bethel, Maysville, North Carolina

    These are delicious! My kids love cinnamon and these hit the spot. My 5&7year olds gobbled them up.

    My kids normally don't like carrots, but they loved these! So different from any of my other carrot recipes.

    Very easy and good. My son and I really liked them but they weren't enough to convert my husband who doesn't really care for cooked carrots. I did not have ginger so just used extra cinnamon.
