Tamales Dulces for Christmas (Salinas)

Melanie Wong | Dec 25, 2006 06:59 AM

My brother took care of this year's run for the tamales, stopping by Sr. Valdez's cart after 4pm. Fresh from the steamer, I had one of the queso ones for dinner, followed by a sweet one for dessert. This year's tamales dulces are especially good. Rather than "dry", I'd describe the texture of the masa as crumbly and almost cake-like with a nice hint of cinnamon and bits of pineapple and raisins.
