  • Unfold phyllo. Place one sheet of phyllo on work surface (cover remaining phyllo to prevent if from drying out; see tip); brush phyllo sheet with some of the 1/3 cup melted butter. Top with a second sheet of phyllo. Repeat brushing and layering two more times (four sheets total). Brush top with melted butter. Trim edges to form a 12x8-inch rectangle. Cut phyllo stack into six 4-inch squares. Repeat with the remaining phyllo sheets and butter to make twenty-four 4-inch squares. Press phyllo squares into the prepared muffin cups.
