It appears from the recipe that you need only brush the top of the phyllo rolls with butter. Seeing that it was reviewed and that the tester had good results, I would feel comfortable following the recipe as written.

Thanks for your help. I don't have a vast experience with filo, but all recipes I tried you have to brush the sheets with butter or spray them with oil. I'm sure you're right.
