2 Eggs

1 1/2 c Cranberries, fresh or frozen
1 Orange, peeled
2 tb Dark -or- Light Brown Sugar --or- Fructose
1/4 c Unsweetened Applesauce

Soften the yeast in the warm water.

Combine the flours, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl.

Cut in the margarine until the mixture resembles crumbs.

Add the milk, eggs and softened yeast.

Mix well.

Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.

Meanwhile, make the Cranberry-Orange Filling by combining the cranberries,orange, brown sugar (or fructose), and applesauce in a food processor.

Transfer to a saucepan and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes.


After chilling, roll the dough into an 18- by 12-inch rectangle on a floured surface.

Spread with the filling.

Roll up jelly roll fashion.

Cut into 18 rolls with a sharp knife.
