I found the dinner roll dough too hard to work with. I used Pepperidge Farm sheet puff pastery dough and it worked great. You're able to cut professional looking 2" dough squares and the finished product has that "flakey" quality you can't achieve with the dinner roll dough. Since the dough "puffs" up when baked, add alot of crabmeat mixture to each square. Used "Pam" to coat the baking sheet and reduced temperature to 375 F in a convection oven to prevent any burning. Worked great. An excellent appeetizer.



I didn't have curry, so I skipped it. Wasn't sure what kind of dinner rolls to buy so I got crescents. It was delicious! This is absolutely a hit. If you are trying this recipe for the first time, you are safe serving to company because it is easy and tastes great even when you alter it, as I did.



These were delicious! I substituted the imitation Krab with 2 (6 oz.) cans of real white crabmeat and replaced the curry with garlic powder. They were awesome.
