Whisk in the egg. Now fold in the flour and lemon rind gradually to form a dough. Put the dough on to a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Roll out the dough and then cut out shapes using cookie cutters. Place these on the baking sheet, spacing about 2 inches apart. Bake cookies for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
