"I did not have everything on hand so instead of using canned cranberry sauce, I used dried cranberries (about a cup), and 2 tablespoons of orange juice instead of the orange marmalade and it still turned out great. I think I will try using fresh apples next time, because my family and I did not care for the pie filling, it didn't seem to go."
