These are fantastic! I made them for the appetizer table before Christmas dinner and they were such a hit. However!....I knew right away that the amount of filling sounded too small compared to the dough, so I used only one can of crescents and made the filling exactly like the recipe says. The previous reviewer complained about cutting the triangles but that was the easiest part! It took a while to get the wrapping technique perfected though. Anyway, if you make this I highly suggest you either double the filling OR use only one can of crescents like I did. The nature of the crescent dough is fluffy and layered, so the original amount of filling would just get lost in there. Also I used quite a bit more sesame seeds than it called for...I think maybe that is a typo in the recipe? Please check out my photos if you would like to see how these turned out!


I received compliments on this dish all evening. It was a great success.

Fast, easy, pretty, and tasty, this little recipe makes a wonderful appetizer. I’m not a fan of canned crab but I did use it. I would recommend using fresh crab though instead of the canned.
