Ingredients

1
loaf frozen sweet or white bread dough, thawed (1/3 of 48-oz. pkg.)
3/4
cup chopped fresh or frozen cranberries
2
teaspoons all purpose or unbleached flour
2
teaspoons grated orange peel
1/3
cup sugar
1/4
teaspoon allspice or cinnamon
3
tablespoons margarine or butter, softened
1/2
cup powdered sugar
1
to 2 teaspoons orange juice
2
tablespoons chopped pecans

Directions

  1. 1 Let dough rise as directed on package. Meanwhile, line cookie sheet with parchment paper or generously grease.
  2. 2 In medium bowl, combine cranberries, flour and orange peel; mix well. In small bowl, combine sugar and allspice.
  3. 3 Roll dough to form 16x12-inch rectangle. Spread with margarine. Sprinkle evenly with sugar mixture. Spread cranberry mixture evenly over sugar mixture. Starting with long side, roll up jelly-roll fashion. Pinch seam to seal. Place, seam side up, on paper-lined cookie sheet.
  4. 4 Fold half of roll over top of other half, sealing ends together. Starting 1 inch from sealed end, cut all the way through dough to folded end. Turn cut sides out so they face up, forming a heart shape. (See photo). Cover with greased plastic wrap and cloth towel. Let rise in warm place (80 to 85°F.) until light and doubled in size, 50 to 60 minutes.
  5. 5 Heat oven to 350°F. Uncover dough. Bake 20 to 30 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Cool 10 minutes.
  6. 6 In small bowl, blend powdered sugar and enough orange juice for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm loaf. Sprinkle with pecans. Serve warm or cool.
