Easy and delicious! Guest loved them!

cranberry, crab meat & cream cheese

Sue from Dallas, TX

I am glad I doubled this recipe. It was wonderful and a big hit.

So good!!!!!

Natasha from Richmond, BC

I wasn't sure about the cranberries on this....I make a similar recipe with crab/cream cheese mixture in wonton wrappers already. I finally found the phyllo cups (very difficult to locate). I made a few adjustments to the crab meat & cream cheese mixture. I added garlic and a tiny bit of grated cheese (parm or asiago)....all the flavors popped. My guests devoured them and it is a mainstay on my appetizer list!

Something's missing

Jennifer from Seattle, WA

It just seemed like there was something missing from the crab cream cheese mixture. It was okay tasting but I don't think I'd offer it to guests.

Easy, elegant and delicious!

Donna from Valrico, FL

I make this using Neufchâtel instead of regular cream cheese to reduce calories and fat. It is an excellent and easy appetizer for holiday parties or everyday potlucks!
