Melt 2 1/2 tablespoons of butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Saute crimini and shiitake mushrooms with garlic until tender. Remove from heat and set aside. Melt remaining butter in a dish in the microwave.
Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
Unroll the filo pastry, and cut into three equal strips, about 8x30cm. I like to use kitchen shears for this. Place two sheets of the filo onto a cutting board or other work surface, and cover the stack of remaining sheets with damp kitchen paper to keep them from drying out.
Brush the top sheet of filo with melted butter and place a raspberry-sized dab of brie on one end. Top with a small amount of the mushroom mixture. Fold filo pastry over the filling to make a triangle. Continue folding back and forth in a triangle shape, brushing the exposed side of the pastry as you go. Seal the end closed with a little water or butter. Place on an ungreased baking tray and repeat with remaining filo and filling.
Bake the triangles for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, turning over once during baking, until golden brown.
