These were great. I had to half the amount of worchestershire sauce and sesame oil for my family's taste, but I made a double batch and there were only 3 left.

The worcestershir sauce and soy sauce gave this recipe a taste that was a little too strong for me. The mix was alot. I recomend cutting it in half. Other than that they were great. Different but edible.

Wow I just mixed up the the insides, the Worcestershire is a lot but I love it so I only put in two tablespoons because that is all I had and wished I would have tasted it after only one Tablespoon. After tasting it thought HOLY COW! this is getting another 8oz of cream cheese this calmed it down some but I am thinking that perhaps the 3Tablespoons are indeed suppose to be 3tespoons. I love all the garlic and onion. In about three hours I will fry them up and get back to you.

First time I ever made wontons and family loved them!!!! Directions are very easy to follow and well written. Hubby said a big bowl of these and a football game and he's happy. I served with a Thai dipping sauce really set of the flavors

I'm not a fan of crab anything. However, my husband is. So, as a treat, I made these for him. I lowered the amount of worcestershire sauce and sesame oil. We added more cream cheese and pepper. I used one clove of garlic and that wasn't quite enough. We also added about a cup of rice. This is enough to probably do 2 packages of 12 oz wonton wrappers. I didn't have peanut oil as I normally use for oriental food. But, I had TONS of olive oil. So, I fried them in it. I am not sure if that effected the taste, but my husband liked it. I also only had 1/2 bunch of onions. The package of wrappers I bought said to use warm water to seal. That's how I do my eggrolls too, and it worked very nicely. http://www.homemade-chinese-soups.com/how-to-fold-wontons.html There is a video on this site that shows you how to wrap them. Watched it twice and just started folding them. They looked professional! It was great! Will be making this again! Thanks! :)

I didn't make the wontons, just the mixture, and it came out pretty well! I will admit, it didn't taste as much like the crab rangoon we'd get from the local Chinese places, but it *did* come out tasting like a delicious crab dip. We served it as is with a bunch of Triscuits, and it was devoured. When next I make it, instead of a 4:3 ratio of cram cheese to crab, I'll try 2:1, as well as cutting back on some of the soy & worcestershire sauce. Excellent recipe, and one that's real easy to tweak for different folks' tastes -- thanks, melismak!

I blew it!! I couldn't find wonton wrappers so I used softened lasagna pasta and it didn't work!!! Hopefully I'm the only dummy who thought this would work. I'll try to find wonton wrappers soon so i can make this correctly! Love -michelle

These are fantastic! Definitely do not overcook them or use lowfat cream cheese - the filling will run out of the wontons while cooking!!

We fell in love with some crab wantons at a local restaurant and were paying big money for them. This recipe created just as good a wontan and it will save us a lot of money. Thanks!
