Can I freeze uncooked crab rangoon?

I'm going to a feast of Chinese dishes next weekend, and I want to make the rangoon ahead, to be deep-fried at the last minute when I get there.

Can I make and freeze them this weekend? If so, should I drop them in the hot oil when they are frozen or let them thaw first?

I'm afraid if I just make and refrigerate them, the wrappers will get all gooey.

I am not sure but I think it would make the cream cheese a little funny. I could be wrong, but I think it would be better to keep the wrappers in their packages and just make up the mixture, put it in an airtight bowl, and refrigerate until ready to use.

Ah, thanks for the replies, AAB and Buddy!

I googled and found that I can make ahead and freeze them until ready to drop in the oil! Crab Rangoon I - Allrecipes

Cool, maybe it is because of the wrappers it can keep. Either way good to know as I love to make em at home but never thought to do so in a large batch ahead of time.
Thanks!

I was going to say no but I bake mine in the mini muffin tins and leave them open. But this is good to know for plan-ahead events!
