Fold in almonds and sugar.

On the long end of the phyllo sheet spread some of the fruit and nut mixture in a band about 1 inch wide.
Fold in ends and roll like a jelly roll.
Place on a cooky sheet and brush top with melted butter.
Make diagonal slits along the whole length, about 1 1/2 inches apart, being careful not to cut all the way through.
Continue making the rolls until all nut mixture is used.
