50 g butter
1/4 L milk
25 g fresh yeast
1 egg
2 tbsp honey
1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp kosher salt
500 g flour
75 g dried cranberries

Melt the butter and pour into the milk, which should be heated to lukewarm. Dissolve the yeast in the butter mixture. Beat egg, honey, ginger, and salt into the liquid. Add some of the flour and all of the cranberries and mix the dough together, then add the rest of the flour and knead lightly. The dough should be light and supple, so you might not need all of the flour. Let the dough rise, covered with a damp towel, for ca. 1/2 hour. Punch the dough down and form into 16 rolls. Place them close together on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Let them rise, covered with a damp towel, for ca. 1/2 hour and bake in the middle of the oven at 200 C for ca. 20 minutes. They should be light in colour. Let cool. Split them and toast the insides and serve with your choice of toppings.
