what kind of filling is it? gelatin can be added depending on what it is!

I haven't done this, but a few of my friends have added cornstarch - it seems to thicken without the sweetness. I'm not sure what it does to the texture because they only used it as a filling.

If you use cornstarch, dissolve it in a little bit of liquid first. Make sure there are no lumps. You may have to heat the filling to activate the cornstarch, but I'm not sure about that. You can also use flour instead of corn starch, but it takes more flour than cornstarch to achieve the same amount of thickening.
What's your filling?
