Frosted Chocolate Mocha Cookies
1 pouch sugar cookie mix
1/3 c. cocoa
3 T. instant coffee (I use decaf)
1/2 c. butter, softened
3 T. water
1 c. chopped pecans
1 c. mini chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir together cookie mix, cocoa and instant coffee. Add butter, 3 tablespoons water and the egg; stir until soft dough forms. Stir in the nuts and the chocolate chips.
On ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough with rounded 1 1/2 tablespoon-size cookie scoop or by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart. Press each mound to flatten slightly.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Cool 3 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
Add frosting after cookies are completely cooled.
