How to make Jam Sandwich Cookies:
Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in the egg, salt and vanilla. Slowly mix in the flour over low speed until a soft dough forms.
Flatten dough into a disc. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough into a 1/4" thickness and cut out the desired shape of the cookie. Continue to roll out dough using the scraps. Transfer cookies to a baking sheet and cut out the middles on half of the batch.
Bake 6-8 minutes in pre-heated 375 degree oven.
Dust powdered sugar on the centered cut cookies and place 1/2 tsp of raspberry jam on the whole cookies. Gently sandwich together and refrigerate until needed.
