My boyfriend's stepmother introduced this recipe to me...I think it's from one of her old cook books. It was sooooo yummy, I had to learn how to make it! :-D I usually do a half-recipe because it's enough for at least 20 people. A full recipe would be a mountain of dip! I also omit the almonds, but imagine they'd be very good in it...and I also add a little more garlic and dijon mustard, just to give it a little bit of a kick...but I don't measure that.


  • 24 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 pound flaked crab meat
  • 1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds (optional)
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley


  • Thoroughly combine cheese, mayonnaise, wine, mustard, sugar, onion juice, and garlic.
  • Fold in crab and heat.
  • Transfer to a warm chafing dish and sprinkle with almonds and parsley.
  • Serve with crackers. May also be served cold.
