These Pumpkin Spice Glazed Carrots are perfect for serving during the fall months. Plus, they are great for a Thanksgiving side dish. We make them with butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, and pumpkin pie spice.
Pumpkin Spice Glazed Carrots
Making glazed carrots is so super simple. My family has never been a fan of plain carrots, so I always try to add additional flavors that they will like. I frequently make Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots, and they devour them.
For Thanksgiving, I make my favorite Pumpkin Spice Glazed Carrots. This carrot recipe uses maple syrup and pumpkin spice for added fall flavor. They are a bit sweeter than the other carrots I serve.
I often use my Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice if I have a batch on hand. Store-bought premixed is just as good. The cinnamon, the nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and allspice add the fall flavors.
I mentioned that this recipe uses maple syrup. The syrup, along with the brown sugar and butter, glazes the carrots perfectly. Did I say how the added sweetness will have your family devouring their much-needed veggies?

How to Make Pumpkin Spice Glazed Carrots
First, wash and peel the carrots. I frequently use bagged baby carrots to keep the recipe easy.
Next, add the prepared carrots to a medium-sized pot. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Then, in a medium skillet or saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter, maple syrup, and pumpkin spice. Cook until thickened and caramelizing.
Drain the carrots and add them to the sauce. Stir to coat. Then, cook until desired tenderness.
