Woman's Weekly recipe These impressive winning medal cookies are great for sports days or games in the garden with the kids. Made with crunchy biscuits and chocolate, these cookies are great fun to make


For the biscuits:
  • 125g butter, softened
  • 60g icing sugar
  • Few drops of vanilla essence
  • 175g plain flour
For the decoration:
  • About 125g plain chocolate
  • Gold, silver and bronze edible spray

You will also need:

  • 7cm round cutter
  • 0.7mm icing nozzle
  • Baking sheet lined with bakewell paper
  • Coloured ribbon 1cm wide

Personalise each biscuit with your childs name for the ultimate reward.


  1. To make the biscuits: Beat together the butter, icing sugar and vanilla, then beat in the flour to make a fairly stiff dough. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to about 3-4mm thick. Cut out rounds and place them on the baking sheet. Make a hole in the rounds, using the icing nozzle. Chill them while the oven heats up.
  2. Set the oven to 190C/375F/Gas Mark 5. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 12 mins or until light golden. Leave to cool for a few minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  3. To decorate: Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water. Spread over the biscuits and leave to set. Spray them with the metal colours and use a bamboo stick to write the date, or a name on them. Leave to set. Thread ribbon through. These will keep a couple of days in an airtight tin.
