Mixed Nuts and Fruits Paste for Mooncake (Revised)

My wife and I made a batch of mixed nuts mooncakes replacing the brandy with Chinese rose liquor and the dried cranberries with sultanas. This resulted in a much lighter coloured paste as compared to the ones in the video. These mooncakes are specially for those who like to indulge in a guilt-free healthier version.
