  • cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter , softened
  • 1⅓ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste (or vanilla extract)
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • cups holiday sprinkles , divided


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two large baking pans with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar with an electric hand mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 4-5 minutes. Add egg, egg yolk, vanilla bean paste/extract and almond extract. Beat until combined.
  • Add flour mixture and beat until just combined, being careful not to overmix. Stir in ½ cup of sprinkles.
  • Scoop about 1½ tablespoons of dough and roll into balls. Then roll into remaining 1 cup of sprinkles, lightly pressing sprinkles into dough, if needed. Place dough onto prepared pans and slightly flatten with your hand.

Cookies will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
