Cheesy Crab Rangoon

Nobody really knows the origin of the crab rangoon. Most Americans think that its Chinese because you can only get them at American-Chinese restaurants and take out places. However, like the fortune cookie, the crab rangoon is only available in American and can not be found in China or anywhere else :P Chinese or not Chinese, they sure are great to eat!!
Kevin and I made some up as a late evening snack earlier today. It's really yummy and easy to make. All you need are some wonton wrappers, cream cheese, crab sticks, one egg, some pepper and parsley for seasoning.

Put some soften cream cheese into a big bowl.

Cut the the crab sticks into tiny pieces and mix it in with the cream cheese.

Add in some black pepper and parsley.

Meanwhile, beat one egg with a fork. This will be used to seal the wonton skin later on.

Using a teaspoon, put a ball of cream cheese mix in the middle of a wonton skin.

Spread some egg on the edges of the wonton skin.

Fold it up in half to make a triangle.

Deep fry the crab rangoons until golden brown.

Place it on a paper towel to soak up some of the oil for a bit before serving. Be very careful, it's really hot inside and eating it too soon might burn your lips! :D
