An extra-special cookie needs an amazing glaze, and the founder of Chicago-based Big Fat Cookie outdid herself with the "quadruple chocolate+ back glaze pink/pink," created to raise money for the Lynn Sage Foundation.
The cookie is part of the "Lynn Sage Pack," and 100% of profits from the sale of the four-pack of cookies goes to Lynn Sage Foundation to raise money for breast cancer research.

Want to try making the glaze yourself? Recipe below!
•1/3 to 1/2 cup water
•4 cups confectioners’ sugar + more as needed for consistency
•1 teaspoon light corn syrup or agave
•1 teaspoon vanilla extract
•1 drop pink food coloring for light pink
•3 drops pink food coloring for darker pink
- In a food processor place water, corn syrup, vanilla extract and powdered sugar.
- Blend until smooth. Add food coloring and blend some more to thoroughly distribute color. If the consistency is too thin, add more powder sugar. If too thick, add a few drops of water. The glaze should be the same thickness as corn syrup.
- Keep glaze covered at room temperature for up to 5 days.
- Stir before each use to loosen sugar settled at the bottom.
- On the flat side of any cookie, paint with glaze using a flat knife or frosting spreader.
- Allow glaze to dry. Set cookies on a flat surface or the glaze will drip.
- When glaze is still wet, have fun and add sprinkles or other decoration.
