WOW - for me I got 18 out of this filling - I used homemade pie crust recipie that works for me. I also toped with a light glaze of powdered sugar and milk. We have eaten all of them in one day - they are soooo good. I was surprised my picky eater didn't mind the cranberries - I loved the tartness balanced with the glaze on top. OH - I didn't fry them to reduce fat - just baked them.
