Crab Rangoons!

Yes, another food post! Haha, well one of the older women that I work with was telling me yesterday about how she was going to make some crab rangoons for dinner that night.  So I got excited and told my boyfriend that I could make them for him for lunch, which was what I did today! Well, earlier today, or more like yesterday.  But anyway, I'm not one to cook much since my forte in the kitchen is ONLY baking but these were pretty much self explanatory!

8 oz cream cheese
8 oz crab meat (I used canned)
Pinch of black pepper
Small bowl of water
Package of Wonton wrappers
Soy Sauce
Frying oil

All you have to do is mix together equal parts cream cheese to equal parts crab meat, a pinch of black pepper and some soy sauce.  Once combined, get a baking sheet and put one wonton wrapper on it.  In the center, lightly spread a teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture.  Then dip a finger into the water and drag it along two sides of the wrapper so that when you fold it down it will form a triangle.  Next, fold it over so that the square or diamond looks like a triangle and make sure it's closed securely.  Now for mine I also dipped my finger into the water again and wet one side of the triangle and overlapped it onto the other side.  It now would look like a mix between a crown and a tortellini!  Repeat until the mixture is used up!  Now pour some oil into a frying pan, let it heat up and put a few rangoons in at a time (maybe 3 or 4) and when one side is a nice golden brown, flip and then put them on a paper towel to drain excess oil.  Also, while the uncooked rangoons are waiting for the frying pan, cover them with a damp towel so they do not get dried out.  You can serve these with anything you want really.  Like maybe some sweet and sour sauce, but my boyfriend and I used some plain old soy sauce with some brown sugar mixed in.  Bon appetite!
