These appetizers are sooo delicious! Everyone is always asking for this recipe, even those who don't like crab. This recipe was handed down from my mother, and I don't know where she got it from. I guarantee that if you serve these at your next get together, they will be gobbled up.

I was about to put this recipe on zaar, too! (Mine doesn't have dill in it--only difference!) It is a favorite at our house, I always have some in the freezer. At a party on Sat. I got halfway through the recipe and found I had no crab so I substituted a can of small shrimps--still got raves! Try this--you'll be hooked!

I made a batch of these to keep on hand during the holidays. Everyone has enjoyed them and wants the recipe! I think I will cut back on the butter next time. Thanks for sharing!

I loved the triangles. They were easy and quick to make. The best part was I made a whole batch and was able to put them in the freezer for later. And they still tasted great!
