    Outstanding! I had to use canned crab since it's all that was available, so I used two cans and it came out very well with a nice meaty crabmeat proportion. I need to be a bit more careful in sealing them next time as a little of my filling leaked out on one or two, but they were still great. I froze half the batch to cook at a later date, and I'm already wanting to get to them. :-) Thanks for posting this, it's a keeper.

    Crab Rangoons are one of my very favorite foods. When I discovered that I could make them at home I decided to try a couple of recipes and this is the one that has a permanent spot in my cookbook and my menu. These are so dang good I don't ever need to go to a chinese restaurant again. I do fry them in peanut oil to get that authentic chinese restaurant flavor. Also, I mix up a batch of the stuffing and make the rangoons as I want them. Don't pass this recipe up!

    Oh so good. I made these to go with our Asian themed dinner one night. I had a few blow outs but that was my own fault for not making sure the air was all out when sealing them. I will make these again, who knew that they were so easy. Thank you for posting.

    I made these for my housewarming party, and by the time I got around to grabbing a few snacks, they were all gone! Definitely a great crowd pleaser-even my fussy DH enjoyed them! I recommend using peanut oil for frying-it adds a really nice taste. Thanks for posting, Capn'

    These were really good! A bit tedious to assemble and make, but that's not the recipes fault, it's just a tedious thing to make in general, but the end result is well worth the effort!

    To get that sweet creamy texture like the restaurants use mascarpone cheese or a mixture of mascarpone and cream cheese. It will take it to the next level.

<p>I love to cook and bake! I work for a bank. I love to shop for FUN! I love old vintage cookbooks with simple, tasty recipes. My passion is SEE FOOD....see it and eat it!!! Pet peeves are incomplete recipes and recipes that call for fancy ingredients. If I had a bunch of free time with no responsibilities I would shop til I dropped and spend money like there is no tomorrow....:) My hubby is a tow truck driver and we have an 25 yr old son. We have 4 minature longhaired dachshunds.... I am a breeder as well (with a collection of rare color/pattern combinations).Also, another little fact about me is that I am related to Zaar Chef NursLinda.</p>
