Recipe adapted from Sugar Spun Run and here is her video if helpful



    1. Combine butter and sugars in a large bowl (or in the bowl of a stand mixer) and use an electric mixer to beat until creamy.
    2. Add egg yolk and beat well.
    3. Add vanilla extract, and almond extract (if using). Beat until well-combined.
    4. Add salt to flour, distributing evenly.
    5. With mixer on low-speed, gradually add flour until completely combined. Dough may be crumbly, if needed use a scraper to scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl and work the flour into the dough.
    6. Add nonpareils (if using) and fold into dough (try not to over-work it at this point as nonpareils may bleed).
    7. Divide dough into 2-4 parts and transfer each part onto a sheet of wax paper. Work dough into a 1-2" wide log shape (I like to use the wax paper to help do this)
    8. Roll each log in demura (raw) or colored sugar or in more nonpareils to thoroughly coat the outside edge.
    9. Transfer logs to the refrigerator to chill for at least 2-3 hours (or put in freezer!).
    10. Once dough has chilled, preheat oven to 350ºF.
    11. Remove one cookie dough log from the refrigerator and use a sharp knife to cut into ¼" slices.
    12. Place slices on ungreased cookie sheet about 1" apart and bake on 350ºF for 10-12 minutes or until edges are just beginning to turn golden brown.
    13. Allow to cool on baking sheet before serving.
    14. If desired, dip cooled cookies in chocolate and top with additional sprinkles.
    TIPS! Before chilling the dough, roll the logs in demura sugar or raw sugar or colored sugar or more nonpareils to add crunchy coating to the outside of the log - YUM - And the thinner the logs, the more 'bite-sized' cookies you get. The cookies don't spread too much, so you can put a lot on one tray.
