Treat Yourself: Louie Anderson

Louie Anderson — actor, comedian, author, and star of "Baskets" on FX — joined us in the Allrecipes studio to decorate a cookie that looks like his character, Christine. He also shares stories about his mother, on whom he modeled the role of Christine. Anderson talks about working with Zach Galifianakis and Jonathan Krisel, and reflects on winning an Emmy and getting the dream part of his life at age 61.

Watch Baskets on FX and Hulu, and see more from Anderson at His book, "Hey Mom: Stories for My Mother, But You Can Read Them Too" (Atria Books, 2018) is available at Amazon.
