Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix sugar, butter and egg. Add vanilla or lemon rind and sift self-rising flour into the batter. Mix well and chill dough for at least one hour in the refrigerator. Roll out on a well-floured board and cut with various cookie cutter, about 1/4 inch thick. Place about 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. They spread some as they bake. Bake 10-15 minutes, until golden brown. Take off the sheets at once with a spatula as they stick when they are cool. Put them on foil or waxed paper to cool. When completely cooled, store in air-tight container.
