What could be better than something coated in brown sugar, whiskey, and butter? I don’t think such a thing exists. I made these Whiskey Glazed Carrots for Thanksgiving and they were so delicious! I plan on making these again for a special Christmas dinner.

I tweaked this recipe a bit from The Pioneer Woman.
-1 Stick Butter, divided
-3 lbs. Carrots, peeled and sliced
-1/2 Cup Maker’s Mark (or other whiskey)
-1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
-1/2 teaspoon Salt
-Freshly Ground Pepper, to taste
-Parsley or Chives, to garnish
Melt butter over high heat in a large skillet. In batches, (being sure not to overcrowd the pan,) cook carrots to get some deep brown color on the outside, about 1 minute per side. Remove carrots from skillet. Reduce heat to medium. Pour whiskey into the skillet (be careful with open flame, please!) and allow to cook down for a minute. Add remaining butter and allow to melt. Add brown sugar and stir to melt. Next, add carrots, cover, and cook for 5 minutes. Stir, add salt and pepper if desired, and allow to cook for another 5 minutes. The glaze should be thick, and carrots should pierce with a fork.
