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…

*Crab Rangoon*

Ingredients:

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

 

Directions:

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.
