Beat the butter in a large bowl, until smooth. Add the sugar. Beat until slightly fluffy.

Mix in the vanilla extract, buckwheat flour and almond meal. Use your hands to bring together the dough. Divide the dough into half. Roll each half into a flattish ball.

step 3

Cover with foil and place in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes. Flour your work surface well, working with one dough ball at a time, roll out into a rough circle.

Place them on the baking sheet and bake for about 10-12 minutes, until golden.

step 6

Once the cookies are cooled, place one whole cookie, right side down, put a small teaspoon of jam in the center and spread it gently.

step 7

Place the cutout cookie on top. Press it slightly. Continue with the rest of the cookies.

Once the cookies are cooled, dredge the cutout cookies with icing sugar. These can be stored in an airtight jar for about a week.
