Ingredients:

8 sheets Jus-Rol filo pastry - no bigger than 30cmX20cm (12"X8")
1 tsp mixed spice
4 tbsps icing sugar
100g (4oz) pecans, chopped
100g (4oz) dates, chopped
4 tbsp maple syrup
oil spray

Cooking Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 400F, 200C, Gas Mark 6.

Stir the mixed spice into the icing sugar.
Carefully separate one sheet of filo pastry and lay flat on to a work surface. Spray with a little oil spray.
Sprinkle 1 1/2 tsp of the sugar mixture over half the pastry lengthways.
Sprinkle 1/8 (12 1/2g/1/2oz) of the pecans on top of the sugar.
Fold the plain side of the pastry over the side with the filling on and press around the edges.
Place 1/8 (12 1/2g/1/2oz) of the dates on top and drizzle with 1 1/2 tsps of maple syrup.
Fold the bottom left hand corner up to the opposite edge to form a triangle. Then keep folding the triangle over and over down the pastry until you reach the end of the pastry.
Repeat steps 4 to 9 until you have 8 parcels.
Place the parcels on to a greased baking tray and spray with a little oil spray.
Cook on the top shelf of the oven for 10 minutes until golden brown.

Tips:

If the filo pastry you have bought is frozen allow it to defrost thoroughly before starting.
