“My husband loved the appetizers we ordered at a Chinese restaurant so much that I was determined to make them at home,” relates Cathy Blankman of Warroad, Minnesota. “After two more trips to the restaurant to taste them again and about four home trials, I had them perfected.” TIP: “I often make the filling earlier in the day to save time later,” Cathy says.

"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."
