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
