Recipe by Cindy Weinstein
"This quick and easy dip has all the flavor of fried Rangoon -- without the time and mess of frying. Won ton wrappers are baked crisp, then dipped in a creamy Asian-style sauce. They disappear fast at gatherings! The won ton wrappers may need to be baked in several batches."

This was a big hit at a recent family gathering. I will definitely be using this recipe again. Be sure to bake the wontons long enough. I think I had to bake them 6-7 minutes. You want them crispy. YUM!
This may be a variation of Crab Rangoons, but there is way too much crab vs cream cheese. I had to double the cream cheese to somewhat get away from what looked like Tuna Salad. Maybe the crabmeat I used was too good for the recipe (I used claw meat.) I'm guessing the basic white canned crabmeat, or even surimi would work better. And, you MUST add green onion...
My whole family really enjoyed this dip! I've now used the cream cheese mixture in several other recipes with great results!
This is the first time I really couldn't eat some kind of dip. I'll dip just about anything. I even followed the recommendations for modification and it still just tasted like soy sauce flavored cream cheese. The toasted wontons were good, though!
I agree with other reviewers saying there is too much crab...other than that we really liked. Thanks for the post.
Hmmm ... these were easy to make and fun too. Based on other's reviews, I cut the crab in half and was glad. I also omitted the ginger root as I forgot to pick it up at the store ... missed it a little but not tons. These weren't as creamy as I'd hoped ... wonder what would happen if you added more cream cheese??
it was quick and easy, but it tasted terrible and i had to throw it away. a waste of time and money.
Not super impressed with the idea of this dip being cold. It wasn't bad, but I think I will use it for the filling in homemade crab rangoon!
