Crab Puffs with Cream Cheese

I love cooking with cream cheese. It's a little fatty, but taste is never compromised. These little appetizers remind me of jalapeno poppers, but with yummy crab meat. I usually make these for a game day snack, but they can be brought to any gathering you require an appetizer for.

  • 2 cups oil for deep frying
  • 1/2 pound cooked Jonah crab meat
  • 1/2 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 (16 ounce) package small won ton wrappers

Heat oil in large, heavy saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, mix together cooked crab meat, cream cheese and garlic salt. Roll a small amount of the crab meat mixture inside each won ton wrapper and seal. In small batches, carefully place won tons into the hot oil. Fry 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
