Edible Easter Egg Nests
from Martha Stewart
Kataifi is the name for shredded phyllo dough. If your grocery store doesn't have it, specialty delis usually do (I found fine in my local Italian deli)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for muffin tin
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Brush a 12-cup muffin tin with butter. Pull phyllo into 1-inch bundles; cut bundles into 2-inch lengths. Place in a bowl; separate into a loose pile with fingers. Toss with butter, sugar and cinnamon, if using.
Divide among 12 muffin cups; press into bottom and up sides. Cook until golden and crisp around the edges, 15 minutes or so. Let cool; fill with candies.
