This recipe was submitted by Brittany! Thank you! These sounds so yummy and I am loving the idea at the bottom about making them into an easy dessert! Sounds good to me…
Won-ton wraps ($1.50/2 -4/17 RP) Cost: $0.50
8 oz Cream Cheese ($1/1- 6/5 SS) Cost :$1.00
8 oz Crab ($1/1- 3/1 WW Magazine) Cost: $2.00
1 tsp Scallion, 1 tsp Red Onion, 1 tsp minced garlic clove ($1/$5 Wegmans Coupon)
1/2 tsp soy sauce ($.55/1 Kikkoman printable )
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce ($0.75/1 French’s- 5/15 SS or $1/1 Lea & Perrins printable)
canola oil, medium pot, paper towels, small bowl water
1) Combine Cream Cheese and Crab, stir well. Add sauces, scallion, onion and garlic. Stir
2)Put enough oil in pot to fry 6-7 Rangoon’s. Do not crowd pot, they will stick together. Heat to 375-400 degrees. (Med- high does the trick)
3)Lay out won-ton wraps in a diamond shape. Wet the edges then place 1 tsp of crab mix in the center of each.
4)Seal edges by flipping one side to meet the other. Press firmly & run fingers across to ensure it’s closure.
5)Place on plate with dry paper towel on bottom and damp covering the Rangoon.
6)Place 6-7 won-tons in oil for about 1-1 1/2 minutes. *Don’t crowd!* Flip if necessary. Rangoon’s should be golden brown.
7)Put on plate with paper towels so oil can be soaked up. Enjoy after cooled a couple minutes. DELICIOUS!
For Dessert: OoOolala-
*If you have extra wraps try throwing some cut up bananas, cinnamon, nutmeg, cream cheese, brown sugar and caramel in them. Top with ice cream or cool whip for a delicious dessert.

oohh!! these sound SO good. I can never pass them up when I see them on the menu. I bet the dessert ones would be good with a spoonful of Nutella in them!! So going to try making them this weekend, thanks for posting this!

Sounds great! I used to get the plain cream cheese wontons back in the day, but then it seemed like everyone transitioned over to the crab rangoons and I couldn’t get my plain ones anymore. So glad to get a recipe. Now I can fill them just the way I want. And my son can make his whatever he wants. The dessert ones would be fun for a tween or teen birthday party. Have chinese for the meal and then… They could pick from a “bar” of filling and dipping choices to make their own “rangoons” or “wontons”, with an adult to do the frying. Sounds like fun. 🙂

I’ve had crab rangoon all of one time and have never seen them on a menu again. Very tempted to try this and a dumpling recipe I stumbled upon with wonton wraps.
