I would cut the butter in half. A half a stick for each the carrot mixture and a half a stick for the topping should be more that enough. :-)

What a great recipe. To Prestonkellyann 3227658: You could add a little sugar if you are wanting the sweetness. A couple of other options which would be my choice rather than sugar would be Honey (all natural -no additives), or maybe a little spoon of orange marmalade ... I would add these to the carrots after they were drained and before they were added to the cream sauce. Experiment with it. I think I'm going to add a little cinnamon and nutmeg the next time I fix this dish.

who would of thought? Almost sounds like a sweet potatoe recipe. Would it be okay to add a little sugar???
