Replacing just egg *yolks* in a recipe

I looked through the memories, but I didn't see anything specifically about yolks. I'm hoping somebody has had experience veganizing a recipe that calls for just egg yolks, rather than whole eggs. I'd like to veganize the recipe for kiffles, which are a sort of cookie of Eastern European extraction. You can see pictures here: (Kiffle Kitchen), though the ones my grandmother makes are much smaller and more enclosed. From looking at recipes online, the ingredients seem to be flour, sugar, butter, sour cream, and egg yolks, plus fillings (nuts, apricot, or prune). I figure I can use Buttery Sticks and Tofutti sour cream, but I'm not sure about the eggs. Maybe banana, with a reduction in sugar, so the dough isn't too sweet? The consistency of the dough has to be right so that it can be rolled out thin but not burst and spill the fillings while baking. If anyone has any suggestions or experiences to share, I'd be very grateful.

It would be pretty exciting to make these and have them turn out right. End living without them *and* impress my family! I might even move onto other beloved family recipes...seitan paprikash anyone? (Which would be another egg quandry, the dumplings being made mostly from flour and egg, IIRC.) Yikes!
