  1. Preheat the oven to 150 C / Gas 2.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together pecans, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg until well combined.
  3. Working quickly to prevent filo pastry from drying, brush each sheet with melted butter and stack them. Sprinkle the pastry evenly with the nut mixture and roll, loosely. Cut with a sharp knife into 10 slices. Place slices on a baking tray and brush with melted butter.
  4. Bake in preheated oven 25 to 30 minutes, until golden. Let cool before serving.
