Carrot Pie, with it's sweet cinnamon taste, has been in my family for at least 5 generations. It's a must have at our family Thanksgiving and Christmas get togethers, (but good anytime!!) Can be served with dinner, or as dessert with whipped topping or Ice cream.
Just like potato pancakes only shredded carrots star in this one. Eggs, flour, breadcrumbs and garlic surround and bind the carrot together. They cook up crusty and golden and are so good with homemade applesauce.
Deciding to start eating healthy, I took a classic carrot and raisin salad recipe and lightened it up, then added apples for extra flavor. I took this dish to a weight-loss group meeting...and they loved it! --Kim Jones of Collinsville, Illinois
Orange carrot slivers and yellow parsnips make a pretty and different side dish. If parsnips aren't available, you could substitute rutabagas or turnips. Usually, I saute the vegetables until they are crisp-tender. But they're also good quite well-cooked, almost browned. --Lavonne Hartel Williston, North Dakota
