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. Grind until coarse. Transfer to a saucepan and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes. Cool.

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. Place in an oiled 13- by 9-inch baking pan. Let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes, or until doubled in bulk. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Glaze with orange juice concentrate while still warm.
