Preheat oven to 350F. Cut phyllo sheets in half lengthwise & fourths crosswise, forming 80 4" X 6" squares. Cover phyllo with slightly damp towel. Lay one square on a sheet of waxed paper. Spray it with olive oil. Repaet with 2 more squares. Place a portion of the filling in the centre. Bring up the opposite corners of the phyllo, crimp firmly & twist the ends to form purses, each with a pointed top. Repeat with remaining phyllo. Spray baking sheets with oil. Transfer pastries to sheet & bake until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to a platter & serve at once.
