    I made these for a party for my 21 year old daughter and her girlfriends. Everyone loved them! They were the favorite dish of the party. Best served warm from the oven.

    Sounds great. Has anyone baked the wonton wrappers a day ahead? Do they stay crisp enough to then fill and bake off the next day? Thanks for any help.

    Really good!! It made a lot! They were very easy to make and they had the perfect blend of sweet and savory. I didn't have the pouches of crab, but used 2 cans of pink crab. They are beautiful and perfect for a party! Make these, you'll be happy!
