This is what it should look like after step three.

4. Add in the egg, yolk, and vanilla extract. Beat well for about 4 minutes.

This is what it should look like after step four.

 

5. Pour the flour mixture into the butter mixture and gently mix just until there are no more streaks of flour. Do not over mix.

This is what it would look like after step five.

 

6. Fold in the sprinkles and gently stir until fully mixed in.

This is what it would look like after step six.

 

7. Create balls of cookie dough the about roughly 1 1/2 tablespoons big.

This is what it would look like after step seven.

8. Chill the balls in the freezer for about 5 – 10 minutes. This step is optional, but it is recommended.

9. Spread the balls 2-inches apart on your baking sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges just start to gently color. The tops will look underbaked.

10. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes before you transfer to a wire rack.

These are what the finished product should look like.
