CAME OUT EXCELENT. I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT THE PHYLLO DOUGH ? IT SAYS PLAIN AS DAY TO USE "store-bought phyllo cups" SO YOU DONT NEED THE SHEETS. MY LOCAL STORE SELLS THESE MINI 15 TO A PACK CUPS. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THAT I BAKE THEM FOR ABOUT 3-5 MINS TO GET THEM WARM AND CRISPY, AND SO THE CRAB MIXTURE WILL MELT JUST A LITTLE. YUMMY !

as is this recipe is not that great but if you try tsome of these changes it is excellent. I use 1 thing of cream cheese not 2 and I would also use instead the imitation crab meat as opposed to the meat in the can, it is a better taste and texture and I use more like 10 oz of it. add in 2 tsp of Old Bay seasoning and 1 tsp of hot pepper sauce and some finely minced red pepper. Pipe it out using a baggy with a cut corner onto cucumber slices to counteract the spiciness and you will have a great appetizer.

I gave this recipe 5 stars because when I make it I assemble them and bake them on a cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. I can't imagine eating them cold! Give this a shot and you'll just love them.

I made a couple of changes to it. I used less cream cheese than was asked for. I also baked them for a few minutes. They were absolutely delicious. I set them out and they were gone in less than 20 minutes. I had to send my husband out to get more phyllo shells. I'm definitely planning on making these again. I didn't have a single complaint. Even my husband who does not eat seafood of any kind had some.

Could not be easier or tastier! I did follow previous reviewer's suggestions and only used 8oz of cream cheese. Glad I did. Turned out to be a perfect blend of crab and cream cheese. Also I added a teaspoon of diced pimento for additional color and flavor. I did wind up filling 20 shells so I'm glad I bought two packages. As for the people that complained about the lack of phyllo instructions....here they are....go to the store and buy two boxes of phyllo shells.

I made this recipe but added tabasco to it for a kick and also made my own puffs. Served at a wedding for 300 and everyone raved. None left on the platters.

TOO MUCH CREAM CHEESE! I re-made this with 1 package of cream cheese and it was delicious! This is so easy and impressive I am using it for all my parties from now on.

Very tasty and pretty! I doubled the recipe and made them for a party - got many compliments. I have to agree with someone else who said there may be too much cream cheese, though. The amount of mixture this recipe makes far-exceeds the amount I could ever stuff into 15 small phyllo cups. And, the cream cheese was good, but I think it stole some of the seafood flavor from it. I will use less cream cheese next time. Also, I sprinkled Old Bay seasoning on top instead of cocktail sauce, which was tasty. And, I took someone else's advice and baked the cups for 3 - 4 minutes to take the chill off before serving. I will definitely make these again, thanks Jill!!
