  • 1 Cup Salted Butter room temperature
  • ½ Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1-½ Cups All Purpose Flour
  • ¼ Cup Cornstarch + more for dusting hands
  • ½ Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ½ Teaspoon Almond Extract


  • Preheat the oven to 300F.
  • Using your stand mixer if you have one, beat the butter and powdered sugar for about 5 minutes, until light and fluffy. Use a hand mixer if you don’t have a stand mixer.
  • Mix in the flour, cornstarch, vanilla and almond extracts.
  • Dust your hands with cornstarch to stop the dough from sticking to them.
  • Scoop about 1 tablespoon of the dough into your hands and roll into a ball.
  • Place onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and repeat with the remaining dough.
  • Dip a fork into the cornstarch and press down on top of the cookie ball, lightly. Top with sprinkles of your choice.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes in the middle of the oven. You want to bring the cookies out before they start to brown.
  • Transfer to a cooling rack after about 5 minutes to cool completely.
