Preheat oven to 350 degrees farenheit. In a large bowl, mix together the vanilla, butter, egg yolks and brown sugar until creamy. Add the flour and salt and mix well. Roll the dough into 1″ balls and place them on greased cookie sheets. Make a thumbprint in each ball and then place a maraschino cherry in each thumbprint. Bake for about 10 minutes.
