Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Step 2: Mix all filling ingredients together in a large bowl. Set aside to cool.
Step 3: Place one sheet of phyllo dough on table. With a butter brush, lightly spread melted butter on phyllo sheet. Sprinkle with sugar.
Step 4: Layer second sheet of phyllo on top of first one, and repeat procedure.
Step 5: Layer with third sheet and repeat procedure.
Step 6: Place 2 tablespoonfuls of sweet potato mixture in one corner of the phyllo dough. Now fold phyllo sheets in half the long way, covering the sweet potato mixture.
Step 7: Continue, folding phyllo into a triangle, and folding back and forth from side to side, as if folding a military flag, until you get to the end of the dough. Tuck any leftover ends in, and put onto baking sheet, coated with non-stick cooking spray.
Step 8: Repeat until all triangles are finished.
Step 9: Spread some melted butter on top of each triangle, then sprinkle with some sugar and nuts on top.
