Crab Rangoons

A Chinese restaurant favorite can now be made at home. Very easy and very good.

1 8 oz pkg cream cheese
2-3 green onions chopped very fine
1/4 c. crab meat, chopped very fine (imitation meat can be used)
dash salt

wonton wrappers
oil for cooking

Mix first 4 ingredients, taste to make sure it suits you, adjust if needed. Put a small dab in the middle of a wonton wrapper. Put a small amount of water around the edges and draw up corners to the middle, press to seal shut. Do several and set aside until ready to cook. Heat oil until hot and put 2-3 into the oil and fry until they are golden brown. Drain on paper towels.

* Many recipes call for garlic and soy sauce. I prefer it without, but you can always put those in to your taste.
