Crab-Filled Crescent Wontons

I've been looking for new appetizer recipes and this one is amazing.

Just mix together some chopped crab meat (I used the imitation stuff), cream cheese, mayonnaise, green onion, and cayenne pepper in a bowl.

1-8 oz. tube crescent roll dough
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup cooked crabmeat, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
1/8- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and pepper, to taste
Heat oven to 375°F.
Unroll a refrigerated tube of crescent roll dough on your work surface. Pinch the seams and roll it out a bit to make an even rectangle.  Cut the dough into 24 squares (6 rows by 4 rows).

In small bowl, mix cream cheese, mayo, crabmeat, onion, and red pepper. Salt and pepper to taste. Divide crab mixture evenly among the squares, dropping it by spoonfulls that are 1/2 inch from 1 corner of each square.

Starting with same corner, fold dough over filling, and tuck end tightly underneath filling; continue rolling to within 1/2 inch of opposite corner.

Roll opposite corner of dough over roll; press to seal. Place on cookie sheet. Brush with egg white, if desired.  Then, bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
