I had some carrots to use up, and had all the other ingredients on hand, so I gave this a try. I made it exactly as written. I guess I cooked the carrots long enough, but I'd never pureed carrots before. I found that you have to run the blender for a while - my results still had a few chunks in them.
When baking, the casserole was still pretty liquid in the middle, even at 30 minutes. So I wound up baking it for 36 minutes total, and it looked somewhat "set". I then let it sit out and cool a bit for 5-10 minutes, and the consistency was thickened nicely by that point.
This was a pretty good dish. I can take or leave carrots, and I'm not a fan of sweet potatoes or pumpkin pie, which I think this dish resembles, but I was willing to try it. I thought it was maybe a little too sweet, though, so maybe 2/3 or even 1/2 cup of sugar would suffice next time. I think this dish would really shine when paired with an appropriate main dish (maybe ham would be a good choice?).
