“I was amazed to see all the Crab Rangoon recipes on zaar and I didn't find these - they are a little different but amazing! ;) We have made these quite a few times and changed them a bit - so as to be able to taste different varieties. They all have been wonderful! :) was were the original recipe was found. I happen to like the apricot and seedless raspberry preserves the best - just personal preference. LOL”
