This is an amazingly easy recipe to follow and very delicious. None of my family was able to guess that it was carrots. I made this for our Christmas Dinner last year and everyone loved it, including the children. They all thought it was sweet potatoes or yams. Now, this recipe is a copykat of Piccadilly Cafeteria's recipe. If you wanted to switch up and put less sugar I am sure that you could, but again we indulged for the holiday and make it just as the recipe stated.
