A little crab goes a long way in this recipe. The puffs look fancy even though the preparation is simple

Prep:
20 Min
Cook:
10 Min
Method:
Deep Fry

Ingredients

1 pkg
(3 oz) cream cheese softened
1/4 lb
crab meat, fresh, canned or frozen
1 tsp
finely minced garlic
1 dash(es)
worcestershire sauce
2
drops hot pepper sauce
1/4 tsp
salt
1/8 tsp
white pepper
1/2 lb
(approx) wonton wrappers
margarine
vegetable oil for frying
mustard powder
water

Step-By-Step

1Combine cream cheese, crab, garlic, Worcestershire, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper

Place 1/2 teaspoon (slightly rounded) crab filling in center of each wonton wrapper.

Spread small amount margarine on two adjacent sides of wrapper

Fold one side over to form a triangle
2Press at edges to seal.(The margarine helps, since the wrappers are lightly floured and resist sticking.)

Pinch in middle, then fold down opposite corners of triangle as though folding a paper airplane, forming wings
3Deep fry in hot vegetable oil until golden brown

Drain on paper towels

Serve with hot mustard by mixing dry mustard powder and water to desired consistency.
4NOTE:
These can be assembled and refrigerated or frozen before frying. Be sure to keep them in an airtight container because the wonton skins dry out easily
