Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Grease 6 non-stick muffin tins with some of the melted butter.
Lay filo sheets on work surface, one on top of the other. Cut the stack into 24 equal (12cm) squares.
Line each muffin tin with a filo square and brush with melted butter. Place another square on top, with corners offset, and brush with butter. Layer four filo squares in each tin in the same manner.
Bake the filo cases for 6-7 minutes, or until golden. Cool completely before filling.
After cooling, sprinkle cheese into each shell. Combine remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and mix. Spoon a teaspoonful of crab mixture into each shell. Return to preheated oven and bake 18-20 minutes or until pastry is browned. Serve warm.
Made these last Xmas as a starter, added prawns for a bit more texture and they were great. Guests loved them so much that I have been 'ordered' to do them again this Xmas. Easy to make, filling and pastry shells can be made in advance then assembled and baked off when you need them. - 19 Nov 2016
