How to Make Sourdough Gingerbread Biscotti in Your Air Fryer or Oven

These gingerbread biscotti are good, easy, and quick to do using your air fryer. The biscotti also are a great way to use up your sourdough discard. The discard gives the cookies a deeper, more interesting flavor and works well with the molasses and spices in the recipe. The ginger in the recipe is quite mild, so if you really like ginger, feel free to increase the amount you use. I like to use white chocolate chips (or white baking chips) in the biscotti, because the chips add to the biscottis' sweetness and provide little bites of creaminess to the cookies. You can substitute (or add) nuts (almonds are good!) or just leave the biscotti plain. If you'd like to bake the biscotti in the regular oven, you can bake them at 350 degrees for 30 minutes for the first bake and 10-15 minutes for the second bake. Try the cookies alongside fresh fruit or ice cream or just with your coffee, tea, or a big cup of hot cocoa. Enjoy!

Sourdough Gingerbread Biscotti -- Makes about 18


1 cup of sourdough starter/discard

1 large egg

1/4 cup of canola oil

2 tablespoons of molasses

1/2 cup of dark brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla

1 1/4 cups of flour

1 teaspoon of baking powder

1/4 teaspoon of salt

1/4 teaspoon of allspice

1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 teaspoon of ground ginger

1/2 cup of white chocolate chips (or white baking chips)

Sugar or cinnamon sugar to dust (optional)


In a large bowl beat together well the starter/discard, egg, oil, molasses, brown sugar, and vanilla. Stir in until combined the flour, baking powder, salt, allspice, cinnamon, and ginger. Fold in the white chocolate chips. Cut small pieces of baking parchment to fit your air fryer basket. Drop about 1/2-2/3 cup of dough onto each piece of parchment and form the dough into a log about 5-inches long and and 1 1/2-inches wide. Sprinkle the logs with cinnamon sugar or sugar if you like. Put one dough-topped piece of parchment in your air fryer basket, put the basket in the air fryer, and air fry the dough at 320 degrees for about 15 minutes or until puffed and mostly firm. Remove the log from the air fryer basket to cool a little and put in another dough log to cook. With a sharp knife, cut down sharply, crosswise, on the dough log to make 1/2- 1-inch slices. Turn the slices down flat on their parchment. When the second log has finished cooking, put the cut slices on their parchment back into the air fryer basket, return the basket to the air fryer, and air fry the slices at 320 degrees for another 5-6 minutes. Remove the biscotti from the air fryer to cool. They will crisp up a bit as they stand. Repeat the cooking process with the remaining dough. You can also bake part of the dough into biscotti and stash the remaining dough in the refrigerator to bake another day.
