Make the dough: In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or a hand mixer), cream the butter and cream cheese on medium speed until light and fluffy, 5 to 6 minutes. On low speed, add the dry ingredients and beat until the dough is thoroughly combined. Using a rubber spatula, scrape the dough onto a piece of plastic wrap. Press it down into a 1-inch disk and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or up to 24.
Make the filling: In a small bowl, combine the sugars, cinnamon, walnuts and dried cranberries. Set aside.
Roll out the dough: On a floured surface, roll out the dough into a rectangle that is approximately 12 x 16 inches. Trim the dough into two rectangles, each measuring about 6×16 inches.
Fill and shape: Lay out each rectangle on the counter so that each side nearest to you is a long (16-inch) one. Spread a thin layer of apple butter over the entire surface of the dough except for a long strip along the edge furthest from you. Sprinkle the apple butter layer with half of the filling mixture. Brush some of the egg wash along the edge without filling. Starting with the edges nearest to you, carefully roll the dough around the filling, tucking the filling under the dough as you roll. Apply pressure to the seam to seal. Roll so that the seam is on the bottom, against the counter. Slide the logs of dough onto a cookie sheet, cover them with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about an hour. At this point, the logs can be refrigerated for up to 24 hours or frozen for up to a couple of weeks.
Bake: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Brush the logs with the reserved egg wash and sprinkle with the sugar. Using a sharp knife, slice each log into 1-inch segments and place 1-inch apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake until golden brown and puffy, 15-17 minutes. Let cool completely before serving.
