An appetizer so elegant, no one will believe it's homemade! With just a handful of everyday ingredients, these Crab Puffs are sure to win everyone over.


  • 8 ounces crab meat*
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley, plus more for optional garnish
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh black pepper
  • 1 can crescent dough sheet


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease a mini muffin tin all over, even the top, set aside.
  2. Place the crab, mayonnaise, dijon, garlic, paprika, parsley, salt, and pepper in a medium-sized bowl. Gently mixed together until combined, set aside.
  3. Unroll the dough onto a clean work surface and cut as evenly as you can into 24 equal square pieces. Press each piece into a section of the mini muffin tin, pressing down to form into the tin.
  4. Fill the cups with the crab mixture evenly. Bake for 11-13 minutes until golden brown.
  5. Let cool for a couple minutes in the tin, then transfer to a wire rack to cool until ready to eat.
  6. Garnish with more chopped parsley if desired.


*I used canned crab claw meat, but any crab meat will do, even imitation.
