Baked Crab Wontons

Crab wontons (also referred to as Rangoon's) are typically fried. But unless you have a commercial flash fryer, the cheese gets a little too gooey. When you bake them, the shell has the perfect crunch, and the crab/cheese mixture inside is warmed perfectly, still holding its consistency. I served them with a sweet and sour dipping sauce.

2 tsp
