Yield: 16 biscotti
180 grams flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp ground cardamom
3/4 tsp salt
zest from 1 small lemon
135 grams of 50% hydration sourdough starter
2 large eggs
2 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
150 grams brown sugar
57 grams unsalted butter, room temperature
125 grams almond slivers, chopped
125 grams dried cherries, chopped
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine the flour, cinnamon, cardamom, lemon zest, starter, eggs, and vanilla.
Mix on low speed until the ingredients are well combined. The dough will be very stiff at this point.
Continue mixing on low speed until the gluten is beginning to develop, about 4 minutes.
Add the sugar, in 4 or 5 increments, mixing for about 2 minutes after each addition. The dough is going to become considerably looser as you add the sugar.
Add the butter and mix until it is completely incorporated.
Add the cherries and almonds, and mix on low speed until they are incorporated.
Form the dough into a "log" about 10-12 inches long and as compact in width as you can make it (the dough will spread).
Bake for about 35 minutes, or until the dough is firm but not hard.
Remove the bread to a cutting board and slice into 3/4" slices.
Turn the oven down to 250F.
Stand the biscotti up on the parchment paper-lined baking sheet and return to the oven for an additional 40-50 minutes, or until the biscotti is dry.
Cool on a wire rack.
