I made these for our Christmas dinner, which was ham and the fixings. I'm usually not a big cooked carrot fan, but this is what I went after for seconds and leftovers the next day. I made these ahead of time on the 24th, and they reheated really well for dinner, which left me more time to play with new toys and less time in the kitchen.
1# carrots - peeled, sliced, boiled until cooked, but still firm
2 T butter
2 tsp flour
1/3 c orange juice
1/4 c brown sugar
shake of cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
Melt butter in a saucepan. Blend in flour, then OJ, brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Stir well. Fold in the cooked carrots and place into a casserole dish. Either eat immediately or reheat when needed.
