I found the dinner roll dough too hard to work with. I used Pepperidge Farm sheet puff pastery dough and it worked great. You're able to cut professional looking 2" dough squares and the finished product has that "flakey" quality you can't achieve with the dinner roll dough. Since the dough "puffs" up when baked, add alot of crabmeat mixture to each square. Used "Pam" to coat the baking sheet and reduced temperature to 375 F in a convection oven to prevent any burning. Worked great. An excellent appeetizer.

I really thought this would be a great appetizer with all the rave reviews. It wasnt anything great-just ok. As a matter of fact, Im taking it out of my recipe box and will never make it again.

I didn't have curry, so I skipped it. Wasn't sure what kind of dinner rolls to buy so I got crescents. It was delicious! This is absolutely a hit. If you are trying this recipe for the first time, you are safe serving to company because it is easy and tastes great even when you alter it, as I did.

These were delicious! I substituted the imitation Krab with 2 (6 oz.) cans of real white crabmeat and replaced the curry with garlic powder. They were awesome.

This was a huge hit lastnight at our dinner party. The only difference is that I made using phyllo pastry to add more elegance and they were delicious. It was more difficult with phyllo pasty but worth the effort after receiving rave reviews from our dinner guests!

Really good - very rich. I made it as a main dish and placed them in flattened rolls. Too much for a meal. Sort of like cheesecake - a small piece is to die for--a big slab will make you sick. Excellent for appetizer when made per recipe.

These were very good- and easy! They went fast on my appetizer buffet. I mixed up the filling and refrigerated ahead of time, so I put them together fast. I did use crescent roll dough.
