READY IN: 1hr 45mins




  • Measure the sourdough starter into the large mixing bowl for a Kitchaid Mixer. Add the salt, sugar, melted butter, dry milk powder and eggs and with dough hooks, combine well.
  • If using the yeast, add to 1/4 cup warm water and allow to stand 5 minutes and then add to the sourdough mixture.
  • Gradually add the flour and wheat gluten till the dough forms a ball. It should be soft but not sticky.
  • Turn out onto lightly floured surface and need until smooth and elastic, place the dough into a lightly oiled bowl, turning to coat. Allow to rise until double. The length of rise will depend upon how active your starter is and whether you used the commercial yeast.
  • Punch dough down and roll out on a lightly floured surface into a 18 x 20 inch rectangle. Spread the dough with the softened butter and the brown sugar that has been mixed with the cinnamon. Sprinkle with the dried cranberries and chopped pecans.
  • Starting on a narrow end, gently roll the dough into a log. Using a bread knife, slice the dough into 12 equal slices, place in a 9 x 12 inch pan.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool while preparing the frosting.
  • For the frosting, beat together all the ingredients except milk until light and fluffy. Add in enough milk to make an easy spreading consistency. Spread over the rolls and enjoy.
