DIRECTIONS

  • Place corn husks in a large bowl with warm water. If the husks float up, place a smaller bowl of water on top of them to hold them down in the water.
  • Let soak at least 30 minutes.
  • Tamale dough: Bring water, sugar, syrup and puree to boil over medium high heat.
  • Reduce heat; stir in Masa Harina.
  • Simmer 10 minutes.
  • Stir in remaining ingredients.
  • Mixture should roll into a ball without sticking to your fingers.
  • Spread pink dough onto husks, which have been softened in hot water.
  • Leave a margin at each side.
  • Place 1 to 2 teaspoons of strawberry pie filling in a line through middle of dough.
  • Fold in both sides and press seam together, making sure strawberry filling stays completely inside the dough.
  • Leave ends open.
  • Roll husk and tie ends tightly.
  • 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.
  • Cream Sauce: Whip cream.
  • Slowly add sour cream and continue whipping until stiff peak stage.
  • Add remaining ingredients. Chill until ready to serve.
  • When ready to serve, dollop cream sauce on cooled sweet tamales.
  • Top with strawberries.
