Something Good to Eat

Patricia Davids here with something good.

Crab-filled crescent wontons

I like to cook good things for my friends and family.
I LOVE to cook things that are good and EASY.

This appetizer fits the bill. Picture and recipe are from the Betty Crocker website, my go to place for all things delicious if what I'm looking for isn't in the 1974 dog-eared copy of my own Better Crocker Cookbook that I received as a wedding gift in 1974. I seriously love that book. And the man.

Crab-filled crescent wontons

1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheet
1 package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup chopped cooked crabmeat
1 tablespoon chopped green onion (1 medium)
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
1 egg white, beaten


Heat oven to 375°F.
Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.
Unroll dough on work surface (if using crescent rolls, pinch seams to seal); cut into 6 rows by 4 rows to make 24 squares.
In small bowl, mix cream cheese, crabmeat, onion and red pepper. Spoon about 1 teaspoon crab mixture 1/2 inch from 1 corner of 1 square.
Starting with same corner, fold dough over filling and tuck end tightly underneath filling; continue rolling to within 1/2 inch of opposite corner. Lightly brush exposed corner with egg white.
Roll moistened corner of dough over roll; press to seal. Place on cookie sheet. Brush with egg white. Repeat with remaining squares and filling.
Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet. Serve warm.

The ladies of Love Inspired who blog here have recently talked about adding recipes once in awhile to change things up. I like the idea. Dear Readers, what do you think?  After all, what we write is for you, our books, our blogs and our Facebook posts are all aimed at making you feel like you know us.

Happy cooking and Happy Reading.
My next book, The Wish, will be in stores May 1st.


  1. The crab-filled crescent wantons sound wonderful. Thanks for sharing, Patrica.

  2. I loved your post and I think its a wonderful idea to feature recipes now and then. I'm an avid cook and cookbook collector...and I have and use the 1969 first edition of the Betty Crocker Cookbook. I gave my mom the copy in 1970, then she gave me a copy for our wedding in 1976, but after she passed away I gave mine to a daughter-in-law and starting using hers because I'm sentimental. I hadn't thought to use their website, so I just bookmarked it. Thanks!
    Your recipe sounds wonderful. I printed it off for an Easter dinner. appetizer. A Crescent Roll recipe our whole family has enjoyed for decades is the Crafty Crescent Lasagna. Yum! :)

    1. Of all the things we lost in a house fire decades ago I still mourn the loss of my mother-in-law's cookbook, Granddaughter Ingelnook's Cookbook. 1940 edition. I've never run across another copy. Loads of good stuff in that one.

  3. Oh Patricia. These look so yummy. I would love to make them. I'm a big fan of crab and wontons. And the recipe is actually not complicated at all. Thanks so much for sharing! Blessings!

  4. Patricia, I looked on ebay and amazon. There's a 1942 version and a much newer one on ebay.

  5. Thanks for a great recipe, Patricia! You've made me hungry! :)

    I need to check my own Betty Crocker cookbook for the edition. Evidently, all brides of that era received a copy as a shower or wedding gift!

  6. Sounds good, Patricia. I love to cook when I have time. I love reading through cookbooks, too!
