FFwD: Spiced Butter-Glazed Carrots

Oh yay for me! I got to make the spiced carrots this week!

My cooked-carrot-hating daughter decided to go out to dinner with a friend, so I immediately put this recipe on the menu. I would have anyway, even though, for all her willingness to taste what I make, she refuses to try a cooked carrot.

Well, more for me, I say.

I halved the recipe, using 5 small-to-medium carrots.

It was so delicious that I ate the lot. That's how good they were. I think the hints of cardamom and ginger make all the difference. It's subtle, but important.

Only one more recipe to go for the month of December. Cookies. I'm hoping that the week between the two holidays will be less hectic, so I can enjoying the cookie-baking experience.

Do head over to the French Fridays with Dorie website to see what the others post and to catch a glimpse of the January recipes.

Holiday wishes to everyone.

Those look great. We are a carrot-loving household, so am looking forward to these. I need to get a recipe posted for December, ANY recipe for this group. May just do them all next week as they all look great. Merry Christmas!

These will be next week if I can get motivated. I will serve them with sausages! That is, if I can get motivated!

Your carrots look great! I'm due for this one next week too. My hubby doesn't like cooked carrots, so I'm hoping this will win him over.
