Made with a combination of sweet corn, milk, cinnamon, and sugar, this sweet tamale recipe is simple and straightforward. These tamales do not require any steaming but are rather refrigerated in the corn husks until set. Be sure to boil the corn husks before using them to wrap the sweet tamale mixture.

    This is a good recipe, but it needs adjusted a little. If you boil the corn husks, they would fall apart. I buy dried ones from the Mexican store. That is how we make all of our tamales. They are stronger than fresh husks are, which makes them easier to cook with. I don't think the mixture would solidify like the recipe says. Add some corn masa in to it to help. It won't change the flavor at all. It just helps thicken it. Tamales should be thick enough to take out of the husk and hold to eat.
