Apple tamales with cinnamon are the perfect dessert during fall and winter. Apples always remind me of fall, because my grandparents and I used to go up to the mountains for apples, from the first weekend of September right up until the end of the season. My grandpa loved preparing all kinds of desserts – pies, cookies, pudding, bread and tamales – with those apples. I loved his tamales because we would always prepare them together. Now that I’m a mom, I love making sweet tamales with my children, and they love the apple and cinnamon combo just as much as I do.
