What You Need

 corn husks
1 to 2
Tbsp.  KOOL-AID Cherry Flavor Sugar-Sweetened Drink Mix
cups  chopped fresh or canned pineapple, drained
cup  firmly packed brown sugar

Make It

SOAK corn husks in hot water 30 minutes or let stand overnight in room-temperature water. Prepare Tamale Dough recipe, adding the drink mix to the dough with the masa harina.

ASSEMBLE tamales by spreading 2 Tbsp. of the masa mixture (tamale dough) into a 3x2-inch rectangle down the center of each corn husk, leaving about 2 inches bare at the top of the husk. Spoon 1 Tbsp. of the pineapple and 1 tsp. of the brown sugar down the center of the masa mixture; fold over the sides of the husk and both ends to completely enclose the filling.

STAND tamales in a steamer basket in large pot filled 1/4 full with water. (Make sure tamales are not touching the water.) Bring water to boil; cover. Steam 1 hour or until tamales pull away from the corn husks, adding more water to the pot when necessary. Remove tamales from steamer basket; cool slightly. Top with thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping just before serving, if desired.
