What is crab rangoon?

Crab rangoon or crab puffs are dumpling sized appetizers – made with wonton wrappers – filled with a combination of cream cheese, crab meat, green onions and other seasonings. 

They are utterly addictive and flavor packed. This recipe makes life easier by using wonton wrappers as cups, rather than creating parcels.

Where to find wonton wrappers

You can usually buy wonton wrappers in Chinese or Asian specialty stores, you’ll find them in the refrigerated area in the produce section. Many mainstream grocery stores stock them too.

Can I make these Crab Rangoon Bites ahead of time?

You can assemble these beauties 4 hours in advance. Follow the recipe up until you need to bake the filled wontons. Then cover them loosely and store in the fridge until you’re ready to for the final bake.

Tips!

  • I like using a mix of mozzarella and cheddar in this recipe, but use whatever cheese you have on hand– just make sure not to use anything too strong or it will overpower the crab.
  • Make sure to use the best quality crab you can— it really makes a difference!
  • If you have a food processor you can use it to make the filling nice and smooth, otherwise you can mix by hand or with a hand mixer.
