Other than with banana leaves they don't have to 'stand up" in a steamer like the corn husks did. And you have to 'prep' the banana leaves (sizing, etc.) way more than the simple soak for the corn husks.

I bought a tub of lard that was in the Mexican aisle (looks like shortening, maybe it is).

I LOVE dough so tamales are one of my fave things to eat. I actually thought the whole process was quite easy. But perhaps that's because I only made one batch of 15 or so.
