Butter each of the 3 strips as you layer them. Add your shrimp filling (Approximately 4 shrimp halves/serving) and fold up the triangles as you would fold a flag. Butter the folds as you go so the pillows will stick together. Place the 8 finished triangle pillows on a baking sheet and bake in a 350 oven until the triangles are a golden brown. Serve warm.
