It will slowly start to thicken but take care not to let the mixture boil, it will curdle. Remove the saucepan from the heat as soon as the mixture starts thickening.
4. Unroll the phyllo pastry and layer four sheets on top of each other, brushing each with butter. Cut the pastry into rectangles and place a spoonful of lemon curd onto each. Fold in the edges and roll up. Bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes until golden.
