2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring
2/3 cup buttermilk*
1 tablespoon multi-colored nonpareils


6 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
Multi-colored nonpareils, if desired


Heat oven to 350ºF. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

Combine 2 1/2 cups flour, baking powder and salt in bowl; set aside.

Combine 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup butter in bowl; beat until creamy. Add eggs, vanilla and almond flavoring; beat until well mixed. Add half of flour mixture; beat until well mixed. Add buttermilk; beat until well mixed. Add remaining flour mixture; beat until well mixed. Stir in nonpareils just until mixed.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched. Cool completely.

Combine milk and 2 tablespoons flour in 1-quart saucepan; beat with whisk until smooth. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, 3-4 minutes or until mixture thickens and just comes to a boil. Remove from heat; cool 15 minutes.

Combine 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add flour mixture; beat 5 minutes or until light and creamy and all sugar is dissolved.

Spread about 2 tablespoons frosting onto bottom of 1 cookie; top with another cookie, bottom-side down. Press together lightly. Roll frosted edges in additional nonpareils, if desired.

*Substitute 2 teaspoons lemon juice or vinegar and enough milk to equal 2/3 cup; let stand 5 minutes.
