Ingredients for cookies:
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon coffee concentrate
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Ingredients for coffee drizzle:
1/2 teaspoon coffee concentrate

Heat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, beat granulated and brown sugars, butter and egg with an electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with a spoon, until creamy.
Stir in flour, 1 tablespoon coffee concentrate, the baking soda and salt. Stir in pecans and chocolate chunks.
Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls about 2 inches apart onto an ungreased large cookie sheet.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown and edges are set. Cool for 4 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, dissolve 1/2 teaspoon coffee concentrate in water. Stir in powdered sugar until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle cooled cookies with coffee drizzle made with coffee concentrate. Enjoy!
