Heat oven 300ºF. In large mixer bowl beat margarine, sugar and vanilla until creamy. Add cocoa; blend well. Gradually add flour, blending until smooth. On lightly floured surface or between 2 pieces of wax paper roll dough to about ½ inch thickness. Cut dough into desired shapes with cookie cutter(s). (Scraps can be gathered and re-rolled). Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 20 minutes or until just firm. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Dip about half of each cookie into Chocolate Glaze. Place on wire rack until glaze is set.

Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Gradually add confectioners' sugar, stirring with wire whisk until smooth. Add additional water, 1 teaspoon at a time, if needed for desired consistency.
