    3. 3
      Tamale dough: Bring water, sugar, syrup and puree to boil over medium high heat.

      Reduce heat; stir in Masa Harina.
    5. 5
      Simmer 10 minutes.
    6. 6
      Stir in remaining ingredients.
    7. 7

    9. 9
      Leave a margin at each side.
    10. 10
      Place 1 to 2 teaspoons of strawberry pie filling in a line through middle of dough.
    11. 11
      Fold in both sides and press seam together, making sure strawberry filling stays completely inside the dough.
    12. 12
      Leave ends open.
    13. 13
      Roll husk and tie ends tightly.
    14. 14
      Steam for 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours depending on thickness.

      Tamales will come easily off the husk and have a spongy texture when cooked.
    16. 16
      Cream Sauce: Whip cream.
    17. 17
      Slowly add sour cream and continue whipping until stiff peak stage.

      5 stars for originality and taste! But this was my first time making tamales so I dont think they came out as good as they could have. I skipped the heavy cream on the cream sauce and used low fat sour cream with low fat cool whip and it turned out quite tasty. I think next time I may have to use more hasa harina, or cut back on the liquid because it seemed a bit too moist.... but it also could just be I am not an avid tammale maker. Very good, and exteremly diffrent dessert.
