  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the cream cheese and crabmeat into a small microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave for about 1 minute, to soften the cream cheese. Stir in the shredded cheese until everything is well blended.
  3. Unroll crescent dough on a clean work surface, and separate the triangles. Place a spoonful of the crab mixture onto the wide end of each crescent. Roll towards the point, and pinch the ends together to seal. Place rolls on an ungreased baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Serve warm.

Everyone scarfed these up first at a recent reception I hosted. I figured out a way to make them smaller. Do not separate the triangles when you remove the dough from the can. Smush the perforations together so that you have 4 rectangles. Using a pizza cutter, slice the rectangles in the middle (the short way); then slice those rectangles from one corner to the opposite. Now you should have 4 smaller triangles. It makes way too much filling. I doubled the recipe and ended up with twice the amount of filling needed. I would definately make these again.

I hate to give such a negative review, but I rely so much on these reviews as I decide on the recipes I'm going to make, I want to be honest with mine. So here goes... The bottom line is this recipe lacks flavor. I made three batches of the crab mixture, and it never did taste very good. I followed the recipe for my first batch and it was extremely bland. I added Worcesterhire sauce, garlic powder, minced onion, green peppers, extra cheese, and crab meat to my second batch and still, it lacked flavor. In my third batch, I added a ton of hot sauce and that didn't help. Maybe there is just too much bread and too little crab mixture. I don't know, but this recipe just didn't work for me. Sorry.

This recipe has a lot of potential but just needs a couple improvements. I should note that these were devoured (I served them hot as an hor d'oeuvre) and I got tons of compliments. I made them exactly as directed, with the exception of following someone else's idea of cutting the crescent rolls into smaller squares. They still turned out fairly large for "finger foods" so next time I'm going to cut the dough in circles, fold it half and pinch the dough pierogie/ravioli style. After hearing the filling was a tad bland from my official taste-tester, using the left-over filling I added a ton of Frank's Hot Sauce, fresh grated parmesean cheese, garlic powder, and s&p. Nuked it and served it with crackers. Now this was A HIT!! I will definitely make this again, but make the above changes to the filling.

This was good. It did lack flavor and I did add garlic and S&P to it. As for the extra filling, I bought 2 cans of croissants and that solved the problem of having extra.

Good recipe. I used imitation krab :) (shredded really well) and these were fine. Use regular crescent rolls and regular cream cheese, NOT LITE(they did NOT taste good this way!). I added some onion powder and a dash of hot pepper sauce for some flavor. Also, chive/different flavors of cream cheese works really well, too. Thanks for the recipe.

This recipe was really easy to make, but I thought it lacked flavor. Maybe adding onioons or mushrooms would give it more taste.

Excellent recipe,the leftovers made a great dip. Just to add some zing, I used a little bit of worchestire sauce.

I like the idea of this recipe but the filling needs a little something more. I added pepper and some green onions but will use a little paprika or a stronger cheese next time.
