Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease 9 round or square cups in a muffin pan.
Briefly microwave the cream cheese, about 20 seconds or longer if needed, until it's soft and melted, but not steaming hot. Mix the egg, oil, and dill into the melted cream cheese until well combined. The cream cheese may not be completely smooth, some lumps are okay.
In a separate bowl add the spinach, feta, and bacon. Pour the cream cheese mixture over top, season it with salt and pepper, then use a fork to combine it together.
Line the muffin pan with the pastry squares, stretching them out a little if needed, press them into the bottom of the cups. Divide the spinach among the cups as evenly as possible. Bring the 4 points together over the filling and press them together.
Lightly brush with the melted butter. Bake about 25 minute until golden brown and puffy. Allow to cool in pan on wire rack 10 minutes then run a knife around the edges to loosen them and help pop them out.
