Mix in egg and almond extract on low speed until blended.
Slowly mix in flour mixture until dough forms, stopping mixer to scrape sides and bottom as you go.
Shape dough into balls about 1 tbsp in size.
Pour sprinkles into a small bowl. Roll top 2/3 of each dough ball in sprinkles, coating well. Leave the bottom of each dough ball without sprinkles. Discard excess sprinkles.
