Ingredients

Cookie

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1/2 cup plus 1-2 tbsp candy sprinkles

Frosting

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/4 cup all vegetable shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream or milk
  • gel food coloring

Instructions

Cookie

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 10" round cake pan with parchment paper. Butter and flour sides (I use Baking PAM for this).
  • Use stand mixer with paddle attachment to beat butter and sugar until lightened in color, about 2 minutes.
  • Add egg and beat until well combined, scraping down sides as needed. Then, beat in egg yolk.
  • Beat in vanilla and almond extracts.
  • In a medium sized bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and corn starch. Beat into butter mixture about 1/2 cup at a time, scraping down sides as needed.
  • Stir in 1/2 cup sprinkles.
  • Pour into prepared pan. Sprinkle remaining candy sprinkles (1-2 tbsp) over top of cookie, pressing down very gently.
  • Bake for 24-27 minutes, or until top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into center of cookie comes out clean or with just a few crumbs.
  • Let cool completely before removing cookie from pan.

Frosting

  • Use stand mixer with paddle attachment to beat butter and shortening until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Then beat in vanilla extract.
  • Mix in powdered sugar, about 1/2 cup at a time, scraping down sides as needed.
  • Add milk or heavy cream, 1 tbsp at a time, scraping down as needed.
  • Add gel food coloring until desired color is achieved. Pipe onto cookie as desired (I used a Wilton 2D tip to pipe the frosting along the outside).
