Place the peeled and sliced carrots into a saucepan with 1 cups of water. Let the carrots boil in the water for about 6 to 8 minutes, or until slightly softened.
While the carrots are cooking, place the butter or margarine and brown sugar into a microwavable bowl. Microwave on high for 15 seconds. Stir together and mix in the ground ginger.
Pour the melted butter-brown sugar mixture over the carrots and cook another 3 to 4 minutes, allowing the butter to glaze the carrots.
Sprinkle cinnamon over the carrots before serving.
Serve Gingered Carrot Coins, as side dish.
