Coat 2 12-cups muffin tins with cooking spray or brush with butter.

Unroll phyllo dough; cover with dampened towel.

Put one phyllo sheet on a flat working surface, brush with butter or spay with cooking spray.

Place another layer of phyllo sheet on top of the first one, cut into 12 3-inch squares.

Repeat the same steps and make another 12 3-inch squares.

Arrange the square into each muffin cup, fill up the cup about ⅔ high.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the phyllo sheets turn out golden-brown, the filling is puffed, and top is browned.
