Ingredients

  • 2

    sticks (8 ounces) unsalted butter

  • 1

    cup confectioners' sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 1/2

    teaspoon almond extract

  • 1

    large egg

  • 2 1/4

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1

    teaspoon baking powder

  • Sprinkles, for garnish

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Special equipment: cookie press (a.k.a. spritz gun) Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the vanilla and almond extracts and the egg and mix to incorporate; don't worry if the mixture seems to separate. Sift together the flour and baking powder and add to the creamed butter. Mix until combined. Using a cookie press, press the cookies onto ungreased baking sheets. Top with sprinkles of your choice. Bake until firm but not yet browning, 6 to 8 minutes. After a few minutes, move cookies to a rack and cool.
