-1/8 teaspoon almond extract

-3 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

-Food coloring gel in blue, red, green and yellow

Directions:

  • Beat butter and sugar with a heavy-duty stand mixer on medium speed until creamy; add vanilla and almond extracts and beat until incorporated. Gradually add flour, and beat on low speed until incorporated after each addition
  • Divide dough into 4 equal portions and place each portion in a small bowl. Add desired amount of food coloring gel to each bowl and stir with a fork until food coloring is incorporated. Cover bowls and chill 1 hour
  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Shape 1 dough portion into about 12 (1 1/2-inch) balls and roll in sparkling sugar or sanding sugar. Press sprinkles, sugar pearls, or silver dragées into dough balls. Place decorated balls about 2 inches apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough portions
