Pumpkin Tamales




  1. Prepare the masa. In a large bowl combine the masa, pumpkin and sugar. Add the vanilla extract, mace, cinnamon and raisins; mix until well blended.
  2. To assemble the tamales, place 2 to 3 heaping tablespoons of the masa mixture in the middle of the smooth side of the corn husk. Fold the sides of the husk in toward the center and tie the tamale at both ends with a strand of corn husk. Prick the husk several times using the tip of a very sharp knife. Repeat for the remaining tamales.
  3. Steam the tamales for 45 - 50 minutes.
  4. Serve with a dollop of crema or sour cream.

Yield: 3 - 4 dozen tamales
