These are delicious! I have made them twice. The second time, I made the filling the night before and refrigerated. For some reason it was easier working with the filling, when it was chilled. Also, I halved the recipe and still was able to fill 30 wontons. I will be making for a wedding reception I am catering next month. Thanks for the great recipe!!!! Addendum: (2 weeks later) I placed the filling into the wonton skins and then refrigerated for two hours. DO NOT do this. Some of the wontons turned to mushy dough. Always fry immediately after filling the wonton skins. They were still a huge hit!

This is a great appitizer loved by many people! This is my boyfriends FAVORITE! He's always asking me when I'm going to make it for him again. =0) Instead of using imitation crab, I use canned crab meat. It can get pricey though. I also wrap mine differently. I like being able to taste a lot of the crab & cream cheese when I bit into it... so what I do is take a wonton wrapper, put a spoonful of the mixture in the center, dab beated eggs on the edges, put another wonton wrapper on top & press all the edges together to seal. I make sure there isn't any air bubbles in there either because it'll explode while frying if there is. I fry them in a skillet & when I fry them, I make sure to keep flipping it that way they don't explode. Anyways, hope that was helpful & not confusing! =0P

I made these for Superbowl Sunday and they were a big hit.I tried to freeze some and that doesn't work well. I will make this again.
