3 frozen phyllo pastry sheets, thawed (according to package directions
2 Tbsp. butter, melted

Lay 1 pastry sheet on working surface. Working quickly, brush with melted butter and quickly cover with second sheet of pastry. Brush with remaining butter and cover with third sheet of pastry.

Cut layers into 2 1/2" squares. Carefully press into greased little muffin tins and bake in 375 degree oven for 5 to 6 minutes watching all the time, until lightly brown. Let stand for at least 5-6 minutes before removing.

Makes 20.

These could be filled with a sweet filling like a lemon mousse (or any kind of sweet stuff)or a savory filling like shrimp cocktail or chicken curry or whatever.
