Ingredients

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Clean and soak the cornhusks in warm water for 1 hour.

In a bowl, mix by hand the masa, oil, baking powder and salt. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and mix well. Gently mix in the apple pie filling and pecans. For small tamales, place about 3 tablespoons filling on the smooth side of 1 cornhusk and wrap. There is no rule to wrapping tamales, just do the best you can and have fun. However, peeling apart a cornhusk into strips and using as ties to hold together each tamale is helpful.

Bring water to a boil in a tamale pot or steamer. Steam the tamales over medium heat until the masa is no longer white and doughy, about 40 minutes.
