Beat butter at medium speed of an electric mixer; gradually add 2/3 cup sugar,
beating well. Add egg, lemon rind, and extracts; mix well.
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt; add to creamed mixture. Divide dough in
half. Roll each portion of dough between 2 sheets of wax paper to a 12-inch square.
Chill for at least 1 hour.
Remove one portion of dough from refrigerator; remove top piece of wax paper,
and cut dough into 1 1/2-inch squares. Place 1/4 teaspoon raspberry preserves in
center of half of squares; brush edges of filled squares with water. Place unfilled
squares over filled squares; press edges to seal. Cut an X on top of each. Repeat
with remaining dough and preserves.
