Ingredients

1 pkg
(3 oz) cream cheese softened

1 dash(es)

2
drops hot pepper sauce

vegetable oil for frying

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine 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
2
Press 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
3

Drain on paper towels

Serve with hot mustard by mixing dry mustard powder and water to desired consistency.

NOTE:
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
