Pioneer Woman Whiskey-Glazed Carrots

My mom has been a follower of Pioneer Woman's blog and has had some great success with her recipes. She just came out with a cookbook too - Pioneer Woman Cooks. We made her Whiskey Glazed Carrots on Thanksgiving and everyone loved them - so I wanted to share her recipe. This is a must try! I am posting some photos that I took during our cooking process.

  • 2 pounds (to 3 Pounds) Carrots, Peeled And Cut Into Thick Circles
  • 1 stick Butter
  • ½ cups Jack Daniels Or Other Whiskey
  • ¾ cups (to 1 Cup) Brown Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons (to 1 Teaspoon) Salt
  • Freshly Ground Pepper (to Taste)
Preparation Instructions

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over high heat. Add carrots in two batches., cooking for 60-90 seconds each batch. Remove from skillet.

Pour in whiskey and allow to evaporate 30 seconds. Reduce heat to medium, and add remaining butter. When butter melts, sprinkle brown sugar over the top. Stir together, then add carrots to skillet. Cover, and continue cooking for 5 minutes.

Remove lid and add salt and pepper. Continue cooking until carrots are done and glaze is thick, about 5 more minutes.

Pour onto a platter and serve immediately. Sprinkle with chopped chives if desired.*recipe from Pioneer Woman's blog recipe post

These carrots were delicious and were just as good the day after when we reheated them for a dinner of Thanksgiving leftovers!
