First you start with some tasty ingredients, a little crab, some green onions and a few spices.

Baked Crab Rangoon
1/3 package imitation crab meat (not the kind in a can)
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened (I used fat-free)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 green onion, chopped
half of a 14 ounce package wonton wrappers (about 16 wrappers)
Preheat oven to 350º. Lightly spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
Combine the cream cheese, garlic powder, paprika and green onion in a bowl, mix until soft and well mixed. Lightly stir in the flaked imitation crab meat. Add as much or as little as you like.
Place approximately 1 teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture in the center of the wonton wrappers. Wet wrapper edges with water, fold over the mixture and pinch to seal.
Place the filled wontons on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes, until the wonton edges turn brown and crisp. Serve immediately.
You can also freeze these little guys. After they have been prepared, wrap the uncooked wontons in plastic and foil and pop them in the freezer. When a craving strikes, and it will, trust me, allow the to thaw at room temperature for about 1 hour, then bake as directed above. You’ll never know the difference.
