Candy Corn Sugar Cookies

I was on the lookout for a fall cookie to make to "Boo" our neighbors and came across this recipe. They are easy, adorably cute, and best of all this sugar cookie recipe from Martha Stewart is awesome! I think I've found my new go to sugar cookies. These little treats are perfect for Halloween parties or fall get togethers!
Candy Corn Cookies
Makes 18 cookies (I doubled the recipe)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, very soft
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg yolk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup all purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
About 18 pieces of candy corn
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place butter and sugar in a medium bowl; beat until combined. Beat in egg yolk, vanilla, baking powder, and salt. Add flour and mix until a dough forms. 
Scoop our level teaspoons of dough and roll into balls (chill dough briefly if it becomes too soft to handle). Place balls on baking sheets, 2 inches apart. 
Bake until edges are firm and cookies are dry to the touch (do not let them color!) about 10 to 12 minutes.  Remove from oven and gently press a candy corn into the center of each cookie (surface of cookie may crack slightly). 
Cool on sheets one minutes then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
