  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup colored sprinkles


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the cream cheese, egg and extracts, and beat together until mixed, scraping down the sides of the bowl occasionally.
  • Sprinkle the salt, baking powder and baking soda over top and stir in.
  • Mix in the flour until just combined.
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and pour the sprinkles into a bowl. Scoop up a ball of dough (approximately 2 tablespoons of dough) and roll between your hands into a 1½"-2" ball. Roll the ball of cookie dough in the sprinkles to coat, then place on baking sheet.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough, spacing cookie balls approximately 2" apart. Use a glass to flatten the cookies until they are ½" tall.
  • Bake in preheated oven for approximately 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on the sheet. Store in an airtight container.
