Reviews for Crispy Crab Rangoon
"These are wonderful! I've always baked my crab rangoon in the past; however, this recipe is so easy to prepare and tastes so good, that I plan on making it this way from now on! One word of advice: they do cook very quickly, so have everything ready to go before you start frying them."
