Brush each sheet with butter and layer another sheet on top.
Repeat this until 4 layers are formed.
Now on two of the sheets, layer/ sprinkle crushed pistachios and spread them out evenly with your fingers.
Now take the other two sheets and put the buttered side down on the top of the pistachios. Lightly brush the top of the phyllo with butter as well.
Cut the sheets into 4 equal parts (squares).

Remove the ice cream from the freezer and cut it into phyllo size squares.
