In a small bowl, whisk together egg yolks and vanilla; add to the processor with the motor running. Process until the dough forms into a ball.
Fill your cookie press ¾ of the way full (do not chill the dough!) and form cookies on cool, ungreased baking sheets according to manufacturer’s instructions.
