  1. Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Step 2

    For the tart, unfold the filo pastry but keep it covered with a damp tea towel as you work, to prevent it from drying out. Put a sheet on the prepared baking tray, then brush it carefully with melted butter. Cover with the next sheet, brush with butter, and repeat until you have used all seven sheets.
  3. Step 3

    Cut the stems off the figs, then slice the fruits. Melt the honey in a small pan and spread it over the top layer of filo pastry, leaving a 1cm border all the way round. Arrange the fig slices on top, in straight lines and press them down slightly.
  4. Step 4

    Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the figs have slightly caramelised. 5 For the brandy cream, whip the cream with the icing sugar until light and fluffy, then fold in the brandy. Serve with the tart.
