The holidays are among us and it’s time to cook up those traditional holiday meals that your family loves. Every holiday we all have certain items that we have to cook as the family tradition and then a few items we test out to see if they’ll get added to the official menu.
We decided to bless you with some more celebrity recipes like last year but with an update. Try them out and if you like it, you can add it to your recipe book and pass it off as your own. Believe it or not, some of your favorite celebs can throw down in the kitchen, but they probably only get a chance to do so once or twice a year if that. So here are some of their favorite recipes we rounded up. Click after the jump to see the full list and tweet us your pictures of your finished product on Twitter @Bossip .
Anthony Anderson’s Sweet Potato Pie Recipe
3 medium sweet potatoes, (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 3/4 teaspoons McCormick Gourmet™ Organic Ground Coriander
1 teaspoon McCormick® Ground Cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon McCormick® Ground Nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups whole milk, divided
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon McCormick® All Natural Pure Vanilla Extract
1 (9-inch) frozen unbaked deep dish pie crust
1. preheat oven to 450°F. Pierce sweet potatoes with a fork. Place on a foil-lined baking pan. Bake for 45 minutes or until fork-tender. Cool sweet potatoes completely. Peel sweet potatoes, discarding skin. Cut the flesh into chunks and place in a large bowl. Mash with a potato masher until smooth. (You should have about 2 cups of mashed sweet potatoes.)
2. Place butter, brown sugar, spices, salt, and half of the milk in a medium saucepan. Add mashed sweet potatoes. Cook on low 5 minutes, stirring until butter is melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat. Cool to room temperature.
3. Place eggs, remaining milk, granulated sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat with wire whisk until creamy. Whisk sweet potato mixture into egg mixture until well blended. Pour filling into pie crust.
4. Bake 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F. Bake 1 hour longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely on wire rack.
