Beat butter, sugar and egg yolks together in a bowl or in a stand mixer. Add flour, salt, poppy seeds and vanilla extract. Mix well. Chill dough for one hour.
Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas mark 5. Grease 2 or 3 baking trays.
Take a spoonful of dough at a time, roll in the palm of your hand to shape into small balls; place on baking tray with a little room between each one. Dip the bottom of a glass into the sugar and use this to press the biscuits into a flatter shape. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

When making the second batch I used flour under the juice glass instead of sugar, as the others were a bit sweet. I will also use less suger the next time I make these, as they were a little too sweet for me. Will maybe try some with almonds. - 02 Apr 2009
