Hot Crab Dip - It's Party Time!

My Aunt Jeannie brought this to a family dinner, and 20 minutes after she put it out, it was gone. It took me months to get the recipe out of her, so enjoy the fruits of my persistent wheedling. --AnglophileLV

Hot Crab Dip
2 Tb lemon juice
8 ounce 1/3rd less fat cream cheese
½ cup light mayonnaise
1/4th tsp tobacco sauce
3 green onions chopped
2 cups crabmeat (Costco has it)
2-3 Tb. Parmesan
½ tsp each salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix cream cheese and mayonnaise until fluffy. Stir in lemon juice, tobacco, green onions, crab meat, salt and pepper.
Spread in a 3 cup baking dish and sprinkle with parmesan.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Serve hot with wheat thins (my favorite—you could conceivably use other chips, but why mess with perfection?)
