*When pressing the dough into the muffin cup, be sure to allow any air pocket to escape that may form between the dough and the pan. Cutting small slit on the bottom of each dough cup will help.
You may prepare the dough cups ahead of time. After par-baking the cups in step 7, you may remove and let cool. Then, store in an airtight container in the freezer. When ready to finish the crab cake bites, remove them from the freezer, allow to thaw and continue with the steps above.
