Ingredients
  All purpose flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Baking soda 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Butter/Margarine 10 Tablespoon (11/4 Stick)
  Granulated sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Eggs 2 Large
  Vanilla extract 2 Teaspoon
  Buttermilk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Confectioners sugar 1 3⁄4 Cup (28 tbs)
  Light corn syrup 2 Tablespoon
  Warm water 10 Teaspoon
  Unsweetened cocoa 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.
2. In large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat butter and granulated sugar until creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla until blended. Reduce speed to low; add flour mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat just until combined, occasionally scraping bowl with rubber spatula.
3. Drop dough by 1/4 cups, about 3 inches apart, on two ungreased large cookie sheets. Bake until edges begin to brown and tops spring back when lightly touched with finger, 15 to 17 minutes, rotating sheets between upper and lower racks halfway through baking. With wide spatula, transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
4. When cookies are cool, prepare glazes: In medium bowl, mix 1 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar, 1 tablespoon corn syrup, and 5 to 6 teaspoons water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until smooth and of spreading consistency. Turn cookies flat side up. With small metal spatula, spread glaze over half of each cookie. Allow glaze to set 20 minutes.
5. Meanwhile, prepare chocolate glaze: In small bowl, mix remaining 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, cocoa, remaining 1 tablespoon corn syrup, and remaining 3 to 4 teaspoons water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until smooth and of spreading consistency. With clean small spatula, spread chocolate glaze over remaining un-iced half of each cookie. Let glazes set completely, at least 1 hour.
