> 3/4 cup sugar
> 1/2 tsp salt
> 1 large egg yolk
> 2 tsp vanilla extract

Place 2 cookie sheets in freezer. Preheat oven to 375°F.
With a hand mixer or stand mixer, beat the butter, cream cheese, sugar, and salt until smooth. Beat in the egg yolk, extract, and pumpkin pie spice. Beat in the flour until well mixed. Tint with the food coloring as desired.
Use a cookie press to shape dough on chilled cookie sheets (alternatively, use a leveled tablespoon to scoop rounds onto cookie sheets).
Bake 10–13 min., until edges are golden. Cool on cookie sheets on a wire rack. Repeat baking with remaining dough.
