Cherry Almond Vanilla Biscotti

3 tbsps. unsalted butter at room temperature 
1/3 cup granulated sugar 
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 unbleached all purpose flour
1 egg
1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup chopped raw almonds
1/4 cup dried tart cherries

Step 1 - Preheat your oven to 375 convection bake. Mix your butter, sugar, salt, baking powder and vanilla until combined with your paddle attachment. Then blend in your egg for 20-30 seconds, then add in the flour and yogurt until incorporated. Lastly add in your cherries and almonds until evenly distributed, the dough should not be dry but tacky. 

Step 2 - Form your dough into a rectangle roughly 5 inches x 10 inches (about 1.5 inches tall). Bake on a parchment lined sheet for 30-35 minutes rotating half way through. You want a gold n brown color all around. Remove and slice into 12 pieces, lay them on their sides and bake in a 325 degree oven for another 15-20 minutes rotating half way through. You want a deep golden color, crisp but just so slightly chewy in the middle (you don't want it to crumble into dust). Enjoy!!
