Whiskey Glazed Carrots

I honestly can't remember the last time I had cooked carrots. I feel like whenever my mom would make them they would get suuper soggy so I was really turned off. I was intrigued by this recipe for two reasons. One, it's by the Pioneer Woman who I LOVE. And two, it has whiskey! In the end, it was a little bit sweet for me, but maybe I'll do less brown sugar last time. Also, my carrot pieces really shriveled up, so I think I need to cut them bigger next time too!

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over high heat. Add carrots and cook for 60-90 seconds. Remove from skillet.
