Pour the fruit mince into a bowl and add the cinnamon, nutmeg, walnuts and brandy. Stir and leave aside for 2 hours to soak up and infuse.

Preheat the oven to 200C.

Melt the butter until liquid but not too hot.

Lay out a sheet of phyllo pastry (make sure it is defrosted) and brush it all over with the melted butter. Continue the process until you have 3 sheets of phyllo on top of each other.

Cut the pastry into equal-sized rectangles and and spoon some of the fruit mince onto each.

Roll the pastry up around the fruit mince like a log and pinch the ends to make it look like a "cracker". Tie the ends with some think string so keep this shape.

Brush some more butter over each "cracker" and bake in the oven for 10 minutes.

Eat while still hot.
