Baked Cream Cheese & Crab Ragoons

Oh. My. Goodness. Today, I discovered a heavenly treat! Baked Cream Cheese & Crab Ragoons!! I love me some Chinese food, and any chance I get to eat it I order Crab Ragoons! Now, I'm not sure if Crab Ragoons are authentic Chinese food, but I don't really care, they are delicious! What's even better about this recipe is it's baked and semi-healthy, heck yeah! These puppies are around 65 calories and only 4.5 grams of fat for two pieces! The trick is to not eat too many...easier said than done!

Baked Cream Cheese & Crab Ragoons
5 oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened (1/3 less fat)
1 tablespoons Light Hellmann's Mayonnaise  
2 sticks imitation crab meat, shredded and diced (about 1/4 cup)
3 stalks green onion, diced (I like lots of green onion)
A few dashes of garlic powder to taste
1 box Filo cup shells (15 cups - found in the frozen pastry isle)
duck sauce for dipping

Combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, green onion and garlic powder. Fold in shredded crab meat until well combined. Fill each Filo cup with mixture and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes. I find that it is best to move your baking rack to the top so that the tops brown and the bottoms don't burn.

Serve with duck sauce for dipping, and enjoy! If you can eat less than five, I will be amazed!
