"Simple and delicious, these tamalitos are prepared from corn dough and cheese. You can either leave the ends of the corn husks open or completely enclose the packets and tie them with string. These are traditionally served with Kak"ik (Turkey Leg Soup)."
Soak the dried cornhusks in hot water until they are soft and pliable, about 10 minutes. Drain them well and set aside.
In a large bowl or a food processor, combine the masa harina, lard, and salt. Add the broth a little at a time while mixing to form smooth dough. Stir in the cheese.
Open one of the husks so that it lies flat. If the husks are too small, overlap two (heads to tails) to make up the dimensions. Spread 1/4 cup of the dough in the center of the husk. Fold over the lengthwise edges. Fold up one of the open ends.
Set a rack into a steamer or Dutch oven and fill with enough water to just below rack level. Arrange the tamales, open ends up, on the rack. Cover and set over medium-low heat. Steam for 1 hour, adding water as needed.
