Take 2 phyllo sheet at a time and place it on working surface and cover the remaining sheets with wet cloth.Handle the sheets very carefully, it will tear easily.

Brush the sheet with butter and place the filling at one end and roll the sheet. Then again place the filling and roll it.Repeat it until the end of the sheet.

Similarly do it for all sheets and place it in baking tray and apply butter on top.

Then cut the rolls into pieces.

Cover the baking tray with foil paper(it prevents the top layer turning color very easily).Preheat the oven at 325F,place the tray in oven and bake  it for 20 mins.After that remove the foil paper and bake it for another 10 mins.
