I love Crab Rangoon!  Delicious crab and cream cheese are the perfect combination.  This is one of the easiest recipes to put together and my guests always rave about them!

Because this recipe starts with pre-made crescent dough, these come together in just  minutes! The filling is one of the most delicious crab mixtures you will ever taste but it’s really easy to make.  Creamy, cheesy and full of flavor, this Crab Rangoon appetizer totally irresistible!

Once these come out of the oven let them cool for about 5 minutes before removing them from the pan.  They come out easily if they are slightly cooled.

  1. Made these yummy little appetizers for an early Chistmas party with my Kindness Rock group, and they were delicious! I made a few adaptions so I didn’t have to go to the store, using tiny diced onions instead of green onions, lime juice instead of lemon juice, and a cheese blend of Asiago, Fontina and Parmesan cheese instead of Mozzarella cheese. I will definitely be making them again! Took about 10 minutes from start to the oven!5 stars

  2. Mayonnaise or miracle whip? I know it says mayonnaise but I think a-lot of people call Miracle Whip mayonnaise. And it really does make a difference in the recipe.
