Roll out dough to a 12" x 18" rectangle. Spread cranberries across the rectangle.
Roll up jelly roll style along the shorter side. Cut into 12 rolls and place in the pan on top of the topping. Let rise again until rolls fill the pan.
Bake for 350 degrees for 45 minutes, until golden.
Serve rolls warm drizzled with glaze.
The best way to get sourdough starter is to get some from someone else. If that is not an option you can make your own, but it will take weeks or even months for it to be ready to use. Sourdoughhome.com has a great method for making your own starter as well as instructions for maintaining it once it is nice and bubbly.
