Add brown sugar; beat on medium to high speed until light and fluffy, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg yolk, vanilla, and almond extract until combined. Beat in almond meal on low speed. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour. Divide dough in half.

Starting from a long side, roll up dough using the bottom sheet of waxed paper to help lift and guide the roll. Wrap roll in plastic wrap; repeat with remaining dough and filling. Chill for at least 4 hours.
