How to make

  1. STEP 1

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

  2. STEP 2

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

  3. STEP 3

    Combine 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup butter in bowl; beat until creamy. Add eggs, vanilla and almond extract; 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.

  4. STEP 4

    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.
