Amazing recipe! This is the first tamale dulce I've ever liked. We made a few changes: reduced butter to 1/2 C, used half and half instead of regular milk, and added 1/2 C additional masa. We used half lard and half Crisco. We increased the amount of cinnamon, and finally, we made most of them with banana leaves. They were DIVINE!!!!
This was my first attempt to make any type of tamale before and it was a success. I love these sweet tamales they are perfect for breakfast or even a nighttime snack. I used corn husks, and I ran out of Rum so I used Whiskey to soak the raisins in. I also like the previous user increased the Cinnamon as I didn't feel it was enough. ENJOY!
