  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup sprinkles plus a little extra for tops


  • Preheat oven to 350. Prepare three baking sheets with silicone liners or parchment paper.
  • In large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • Cream butter in stand mixer. Add sugars and beat until well mixed. Add egg and egg yolk and mix just until blended. Add almond and vanilla extract. Add flour mixture. Mix in flour until about halfway blended. Add sprinkles and mix until blended.
  • Scoop out 2 tablespoons dough, roll into balls, and place on prepared cookie sheets. Place more sprinkles on tops of cookies.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes. I usually bake right at 9 minutes but your oven may run hotter or less hot. Don't let the cookies brown on the edges though or they will be over-cooked. Pull them when they still look shiny.
  • Remove from oven and allow cookies to rest on cookie sheets for five minutes. Transfer cookies to cooling racks and allow to cool completely.
