  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 190°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Step 2

    Combine the chopped pear, grated pear, mixed spice, caster sugar, cranberries, breadcrumbs, orange rind and chopped butter in a bowl.
  3. Step 3

    Place one fillo sheet on a clean work surface. Brush with a little melted butter. Top with another fillo sheet and brush with a little more of the melted butter. Repeat with remaining fillo sheets and melted butter. Place the pear mixture lengthways along the centre of pastry, leaving a 5cm border from the short ends. Roll to enclose and fold in the sides. Place, seam-side down, on the prepared tray. Brush with any remaining melted butter. Bake for 40 mins or until golden and heated through. Set aside for 5 mins to cool. Dust with icing sugar. Cut into slices and serve with cream.
