I've made and eaten my fair share of tamales and these are the best sweet tamales I have ever eaten! This is an Emeril Lagasse recipe and has become a new family tradition. My DBF suggested that next year we only make these and skip the pork tamales! I didn't use the banana leaves but instead soaked about 40 corn husks in warm water for 1/2 an hour and used those.
