      This was my first experience making tamales, and there's no going back now. :) I broiled the corn for a few minutes to give it a roasted flavor, but I think these would be good even with merely thawed corn. Also, I softened the husks with warm water before rolling the tamales, and I shaped the tamale dough into short cylinders rather than a large circle. I liked this recipe so much, I used it as a base for an improvised sweet tamale recipe. Thank you so much for posting this!
