Crispy, cheesy, and with real crab!

This recipe comes from Chrissy's first book, Cravings, but crab rangoon are more popular than ever so we're sharing it again, six years later! Here's her original intro from the book:

My favorite guilty-pleasure restaurants, ranked:

5. Outback Steakhouse (Bloomin’ Onion)

4. Applebee’s (Riblets)

3. Islands (Teriyaki pineapple chicken tacos)

2. Red Robin (Ranch dressing)

1. P.F.-uckin-Chang’s (Crab wontons)

This dish (and P.F. Chang’s in general) is about as Chinese as McDonald’s is Scottish, but at least you can make these in the comfort of your own home without staring at a statue of a Mongolian warrior with a single tear coming from his eye. Anyway, I have NO shame in my P.F. Chang’s wonton-loving game. Home-fried wontons are a freaking delight. Fun to stuff, quick to cook, and piping hot when they’re finally popped into your mouth.
