With Fall in Full swing nothing is more warming than delicious Pumpkin. Here’s a twist on an old Mexican favorite to incorporate the taste of fall and a delicious warm treat that soothes the soul! Check out the fun Pumpkin Pie Recipe from IMUSA.
- 40 to 60 dried corn husks
- 7 cups maseca corn flour
- 3 cups packed brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 2 29-ounce cans of pumpkin puree
- 4 sticks of butter, melted
- 2 cups of warm milk
- 2 cups of walnuts, chopped
- 12 ounces of raisins
- Fill a large bowl with warm water and soak corn husks until softened, about 30 minutes.
- In an extra-large bowl add Maseca corn flour and the rest of the dry ingredients. Mix together making sure that all of the clumps are broken up with your fingers. Then add all of the wet ingredients and once again, use your hands to mix the corn flour. Add more water as needed until you achieve the consistency of peanut butter. Fold in the walnuts and raisins.
- Assemble the tamales by using a rubber spatula to spread 1⁄2 cup to 1 cup of dough mixture onto the corn husk, depending on the size of the corn husk. The spread should cover about two thirds of the husk, away from the pointed end, making sure you leave some space on each side to fold. Gently fold one side of the corn husk to the other end and fold up the pointed end across. Lay each tamale fold-side down. There should be an open end to each tamale.
- Once the tamales are folded, fill the IMUSA TAMALE STEAMER with water just below the fill line and place the steam tray on the rack. Carefully place each tamale standing up on the steam tray without overloading it and bring water to a simmer. Steam with the lid on for 90 minutes.
- Remove each tamale with tongs and let rest for a few minutes before serving it as a sweet side-dish. MAKES 40-60 TAMALES.
