Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz

These are the most delicious appetizers, and they are quite simple to prepare, but don't wait for a special occasion to have these, they are great for a weekend snack. This recipe makes 24 Wonton cups, I would double the recipe, as these will go fast!

I must be the odd one out here. My wontons came out beautiful. The cream cheese mixture came out perfect with just the right amount for each cup. I added one shrimp on each and in the oven they went. Excited, the timer went off! As I pulled them from the oven, I reveled in amazement of how beautiful and perfect they all looked. I plated them and couldn't wait to try!! I popped one in my mouth (it's a huge bite, lol) and. ................ Wa wa waaaa, no flavor. So disappointing. I realized then that there is only garlic and scallions in the recipe. I seasoned the tops with a sprinkle of kosher salt and that just made them taste salty. Then I tried old bay on top. Maybe it's better mixed in because that just tasted weird. I think the mozzarella masks the creaminess and deliciousness of the cream cheese. I do love crab rangoons ALOT so I did think that these were going to taste like that but with shrimp so maybe I had the wrong expectations. 2 stars because they looked beautiful. Sorry, I really wanted to love this recipe.
