“Gawd, what crawled up your butt and made a nest?”
“Seriously, why are you so crabby?”
“Well, you should relax.”
“Maybe you should get out of my face!”
“Maybe you should get out of your OWN FACE.”
“That doesn’t even make any sense, Sasha. How could I get out of my own face? It’s MY face.”
“You shouldn’t say that- it’s an insult to your FACE.”
“Ok, you are not making sense. I’m leaving.”
“Your FACE is leaving. Oh, you’re really leaving. Ok, see you next week! Next! Welcome to Bank of America, how can I help you today?”
When we worked together, crab rangoons were Nicole’s happy place. On the very few occasions she’d eat lunch at the office, I’d find her with a batch of them from the local Chinese food place. When we started the blog, this recipe was her first suggestion. So naturally I ignored her until our last day cooking together (which is weird because when she was eating them for lunch, I was usually found hovering over her waiting for her to offer me one).
These are insanely quick and easy and the perfect dainty appetizer for your next cocktail party. Or when you just need to go to your happy place. (Note: I do not recommend eating them at the same time as these, like we did. Separately delicious but an unholy combination.)

Made 12 Cups
Ingredients1 can of 6 oz. white crab meat (drained and chopped) 4 oz of room temperature cream cheese 2 TBsp of light mayo 1/2 tsp. of Siriacha (we used Co-op hot sauce) 2 tsp. of chives (use scissors!) Ground pepper to taste Wonton wrappers
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine first six ingredients in a bowl, reserving some chives to sprinkle on later.
Spray muffin tin with a little canola oil. Tuck wrappers into muffin tins, make a well in the center and spoon in some of the crab/cream cheese mixture.
Place in oven and bake for approximately 15-20 minutes until the edges of the cups are nicely golden. When you eat one, try to stop yourself from being eternally grateful for things like bright blue nail polish, slumbering and snoring dogs and an excuse to eat warm cream cheese.
