I made these for a luncheon for my 'babes' which included all chinese recipes. These were a big hit and everyone loved them. Only thing I did different was that I put in garlic powder instead of fresh garlic and used about 1/2 tsp. Would definitely make again. Thanks for posting!

My husband loves crab rangoon & I decided to make these last night. He ate them all. This was easy and delicious. I used green onion & I chose to not precook the onion & garlic. Great Recipe. Thanks.
