Best Appetizer?


One of my absolute favorite appetizers is crab rangoon. According to a Food Network episode, it seems as if they are not so difficult to make. All you need is cream cheese, crabmeat, garlic powder, vegetable oil, and wonton wrappers. And I almost forgot the secret ingredient--steak sauce. Prep time: 15 minutes. Cook time: 12 minutes.
I'll let you know how it goes. I might add some scallions for a little crunchy crunch.

Wonton wrappers are hard to find... Here's an easy way to make them at home:

Prep Time: 1 hours, 00 minutes

Ingredients:
1 egg
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 to 1/2 cup water, as needed
Extra flour as needed

Preparation:
Lightly beat the egg with the salt. Add 1/4 cup water.

Sift the flour into a large bowl. Make a well in the middle and add the egg and water mixture. Mix in with the flour. Add as much of the remaining water as necessary to form a dough. (Add more water than the recipe calls for if the dough is too dry).

Form the dough into a ball and knead for about 5 minutes, or until it forms a smooth, workable dough. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll out until very thin, and cut into 3 1/2-inch squares. Store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator or freezer until ready to use.

I had a hard time finding them at Whole Foods. Bought spring rolls wrappers instead. They won't work. Don't buy spring roll wrappers for crab rangoon.
