  • 1
    Let dough rise as directed on package. Meanwhile, line cookie sheet with parchment paper or generously grease.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, combine cranberries, flour and orange peel; mix well. In small bowl, combine sugar and allspice.
  • 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
    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
    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
    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.

Expert Tips

  • Place roll, seam side up, on paper-lined cookie sheet. Fold half of roll over top of other half, scaling ends together. Starting 1 inch from the sealed end, use a knife to cut all the way through dough to folded end. Turn cut sides out so they face up, forming a heart shape and revealing the cranberry filling.
