  • Unroll phyllo dough; cover with plastic wrap. To make a phyllo roll, remove one sheet of phyllo and lightly brush with melted butter. Place a second sheet of phyllo on top of the first; brush with butter. Add four more phyllo sheets, one at a time, brushing each with butter. Spread half of the filling over the phyllo stack, spreading to within 3 inches of the long sides and 1 1/2 inches of the short sides. Fold short sides of phyllo toward center. Fold one long side of phyllo over filling, then roll up. Repeat to make a second phyllo roll.
