Sweet Corn Tamalitos 


5 tablespoons margarine , softened

1/3 cup sugar

2 cups corn kernels (fresh or frozen, thawed)

1/4 cup masa harina flour

2 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon milk

In a small bowl, mix the margarine, masa and sugar with mixer until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Blend 1/2 the corn kernels with the water in a blender until smooth. Combine with margarine mixture, stirring well. Add the remaining corn, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and milk. Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. Pour the mixture into an 8-inch baking dish.

Check water level often, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
