3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon lemon extract, if desired
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
3 to 4 tablespoons milk
1 (1-ounce) square bittersweet or semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted
If chocolate glaze begins to harden, heat in microwave on HIGH (100% power) for 5 to 10 seconds. Use a pastry brush to glaze all cookies with one color glaze first, then the other color.
These cookies are also called "Half Moon Cookies" and can be found at many New York neighborhood delicatessens and bakeries. Some people have a special way of eating these -- they eat the entire chocolate side and then the white side or vice versa!
