Microwave on HIGH in 15 second increments until very warm but not hot to the touch (120 to 130F. Butter wont melt completely). Add to flour mixture with egg.Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add 1 cup flour and citrus zest; beat 2 minutes at high speed, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in just enough remaining flour so that the dough will form into a ball.Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic and dough springs back when lightly pressed with 2 fingers, about 6 to 8 minutes. Cover with a towel; let rest for 10 minutes.For filling, combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside.Roll dough into a 15 x 10-inch rectangle using a rolling pin. Sprinkle cranberries on top and press into dough. Spread 3 tablespoons butter over dough stopping at least 1/2-inch from the edges on the long sides. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture. Beginning at long end of each rectangle, roll up tightly. Pinch seams to seal. Cut into 12 equal pieces. TIP: Use unflavored dental floss instead of a knife to cut rolls.
