  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Either line a baking sheet with foil and lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray OR spray your baking sheet with cooking spray. See Note**. Add carrots to the center.. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together all remaining ingredients and pour over carrots. Toss until evenly coated. Line carrots in a single layer.

Recipe Notes

*Thin carrots are often called baby carrots- not to be confused with baby-cut carrots.  They are  young, thinner carrots that are not tough or woody. They can often be found in the organic section of your grocery store. If you want to use different carrots then cut extra thick carrots in half lengthwise and adjust cooking time – carrots are done when they are fork tender or roast longer for more caramelization.

**If you use thinner carrots, you might not want to use foil because the carrots will caramelize better in the shorter roasting time without foil.

***When you stir at 20 minutes, the Glaze will have liquefied and there will seem like a lot of moisture but the carrots will absorb the moisture/Glaze as they continue cooking.
