Ever since I posted the recipe for my Fried Crab Rangoons, I’ve no lie had to make these 15 times for Mr. Fantabulous. He actually said to me at 10:30 one night as I was heading to bed “Um honey, did you say you were going to make some of those crab wontons as a snack tonight???” Now mind you I made a full dinner earlier AND dessert yet this man is obsessed with these things. Just like we all have the staples in our house – milk, bread, eggs, flour, I now at all times MUST have the crab rangoon filling made up at ready to use at a moment’s notice.
Yeah.. he’s that spoiled! I keep telling people, if there is such a thing as reincarnation, I don’t want to come back as someone famous… I want to come back as Mr. Fantabulous! LOL I want pampered and spoiled like that! 🙂

- 1 8oz package cream cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 cup sliced green onions
- 8 ounces of flaked crab
- 25 to 30 wonton squares or 8 egg roll wrappers cut into quarters.
- Canola oil for brushing the wontons
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Mix all ingredients together but wontons and oil.
- Brush each wonton wrapper with oil and place in a mini muffin tin having the edges stick out and over the top.
- Fill with filling (about a 1/2 -1 teaspoon).
- Take opposite corners of the wonton and gently “pinch together”.
- Repeat with the remaining corners – you want it to just slightly form a point. They will open slightly when cooking – that’s OK.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown/desired crispiness. Keep in mind that they will crisp up slightly more when they are removed from the pan and allowed to slightly cool.

Do you brush the wonton wrapper on both sides?
I do not.

Do you brush both sides of the wrapper with oil?
Could these be made ahead, then frozen, then re-heated in the oven? Or do you think they would get too tough and chewy?
