Super Easy Crab Puffs Recipe (1)

Make sure to REPIN this recipe

So my mom is in a book club – every couple of months she gets to host the book club at my parent’s house. About a week before the event my mom usually asks me to come up with a dish for the event

I already am planning on making a little caprese bites I was not planning on posting the recipe but if y’all would like it I will

The other dish I created were these crab puffs — I want to make something that was VERY simple to make and can be eaten with ease since there will be a lack of table space ( the same concept behind coming up with the caprese bites )

I really like how this recipe came out — I do have a tip 🙂 Always do an egg wash on pastry dough before baking — that is how you can get that lovely golden brown outside

If you do not know how to make a egg wash it is super easy – simple crack 1 egg in a bowl – whisk until the whites and yolk are completely combined

Then taking a kitchen brush – brush the “wash” onto the dough

To cut down on the cost I ended up using canned crab – it only cost a couple of dollars

I do not think someone would be able to tell the difference

If you do make the Super Easy Crab Puffs Recipe please let me know what you think 🙂

Love You Guys!

      I also wanted to know what to do with the other half of the onions

  • sRiley

    Did you use 1 box of pastry sheets or 1 sheet? I used 1 sheet and made 16 but co u or not put 2 TBS or even 2 tsp in one square.

  • Mtor

    i bet these would be awesome with a sweet Asian chili sauce to dip in. Can’t wait to try this recipe.

  • Michelle

    Would like to know if these can be served cold

  • Pamela

    Thank you, saved me today with this recipe, Happy New Year! I can’t wait to come back to your site, kinda in a hurry right now. LOL, relatives headed my way.

  • Adele Aiken

    these look great – do you think they could be made ahead and frozen? either baked or unbaked?

  • K Young

    Definitely Try

  • Luke and Pam Wilson

    Was this actually just 2 green onions or 2 bunches of green onion?

  • Elaine

    Can these be made ahead of time?

  • Shari Schiffman

    Ace these twice now and everyone loved them. The only change I made was to count the pastry and put in 24 mini muffin cup tin to cook.

  • JEAN

    Just a few details would really be helpful. What size to roll dough out to or maybe give us an idea of how
    big the squares should be. I am going to make them right now and just eyeball them based on your pictures.

  • Macy

    I made these today and they came out really good! Everyone seemed to enjoy! Thanks for the recipe!

  • Betty

    Can I freeze the Crabmeat Recipe?

  • Debbie

    Is there a particular reason for using the light cream cheese?
    I usually keep original on hand. Would that be acceptable?

  • Tina Davis

    I made ’em and we loved them!….so easy and yummy
