In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter, sugar and extract at medium speed until creamy, about 1-2 minutes. Add the flour and salt. Mix on low speed until crumbly. Add the food coloring and continue to mix on low until a dough forms. It will be crumbly for a while, but keep beating and scrape the sides of the bowl occasionally. Stir in the nonpareils until evenly distributed.
