For Chocolate Glaze
4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
3 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon light corn syrup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, or grease and flour the pan well so the cookies don’t stick. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.

Place 1/4-cup scoops of batter 2 inches apart of the prepared baking sheet,
spread the batter out with a butter knife, so they’re not completely flat
but look like the pictures below. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the
center comes out dry, 12 to 15 minutes. Let the cookies sit for 5 minutes,
then transfer to a rack to cool.
