  1. Put the raspberries, sugar, half the sugar, and lemon juice in a pot and cook for 10 minutes until it turns into a thick jam. Chill in the fridge for 2 hours or more. 
  2. Mix the flour and almond flour in a bowl. 
  3. Cream the butter, remaining sugar, salt, lemon zest, and vanilla in a large bowl for about 3 minutes until light and fluffy. 
  4. Crack in the egg and mix for 1-2 more minutes. 
  5. Pour in the flours and fold gently with a spatula only until the flour is incorporated. 
  6. Wrap the dough and chill for 1-2 hours in the fridge. 
  7. Lightly flour a surface, sprinkle a little flour on top of the dough, and roll it out so it/s 1/4 inch thick.
  8. Stamp out the cookies with a 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter and then use a 1/2 inch cutter or piping tip to cut out circles from the center of half of the cookies. 
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 F, cool fill with jam, and sandwich with the cutout cookie on top
