  2. lay 1 sheet phyllo on a flat surface. Keep remaining dough covered to prevent drying out. Brush sheet lightly with melted butter and top with a second sheet of dough. continue brushing and stacking until you have a stack of 5 sheets.
  3. Cut out rounds using a 3 1/4 inch circle cutter, you should get 8 rounds. Place in the muffin tin. Repeat with remaining dough; you should end up with 24 cups. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until edges are lightly golden and bottoms are puffed. Cool before using.
