Au Gratin Carrots

2 lbs. carrots, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup butter, divided
3 T. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 cups milk
4 oz. Cheddar cheese, shredded
2 T. fresh parsley, chopped
2 cups cornflakes, crushed

Cook the carrots until crisp-tender; drain and set aside. In a saucepan over medium heat, sauté onion in 3 T. butter until tender. Stir in flour, salt, and pepper. Gradually add milk; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook for 1 minute or until thickened. Stir in cheese just until melted. Add carrots and parsley. Pour into an 8-inch square baking dish. Melt remaining butter; add cornflakes. Sprinkle over carrots. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly.
