Crab Rangoonies

I have been scouring the internet and Food Network for great recipes to help me slim down. My downfall is when I get so sick of diet food and just give up. This is what was beginning to happen last month. I was so tired of whole wheat toast and tuna that when the holiday food came around I just couldn’t stop myself.
There is a fantastic show on Food Network called Hungry Girl and she takes yummy recipes of all varieties and finds ways to cut out all of the fat and calories. Here is the most recent recipe I tried. You should make them because they are delicious. Even my husband ate them.

Ingredients:1/4 cup fat-free cream cheese, room
temperature
2 wedges of The Laughing Cow Light Original Swiss Cheese
4 oz.
imitation crabmeat, flaked
1 tsp. low-sodium/lite soy sauce
1/2 tsp.
chopped garlic
2 scallions, finely chopped
16 small square wonton
wrappers (often stocked near the tofu in the fridge section of the store)
Optional: sweet & sour sauce or Chinese-style hot mustard, for
dipping

Directions:Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

To
make your filling, combine all ingredients except wonton wrappers in a bowl,
breaking up the cheese wedges as you add them. Mix until uniform. Set aside.
Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray and set that aside as well.

Lay
two wrappers flat on a clean, dry surface. Spoon a heaping 1/2 tbsp. of filling
into the center of each wrapper. Moisten all four edges of each wrapper by
dabbing your fingers in water and going over the edges smoothly. Fold the bottom
left corner of each wrapper to meet the top right corner, forming a triangle and
enclosing the filling. Press firmly on the edges to seal. Repeat with all
remaining wrappers and filling, gently placing each rangoon flat on the baking
sheet.

Spray the tops of the wontons with nonstick spray. Bake in the
oven for about 12 minutes, carefully flipping halfway through, until golden
brown. Allow to cool slightly.

If you like, dip your rangoonies in some
sweet & sour sauce or hot mustard!
