Preheat the oven to 150 C / Gas mark 2.
Add butter and sugar to the bowl. Mix well.
Add vanilla and flour and mix well.
Roll out the mixture to about 5mm.
Cut using a biscuit cutter or the top of a cup.
Cut a small hole (for your medal ribbon to go through) near the top of the biscuit with a straw or spoon handle then lay them onto a baking tray, making sure you’ve greased it so the biscuits don’t stick.
Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Once cooked remove from the oven. Leave on a baking tray / cooling rack to cool.
Spread icing onto biscuits using a palette knife. Let the icing harden a little, but not solid to the touch. Then decorate by adding edible glitter / silver or gold balls, then push the strawberry laces through the hole at the top of the biscuit to make your ribbon.
And there you have it.. completely edible biscuit medals to give to your friends and family!
