Baking is a stress outlet for me. The cozy smell of pumpkin always makes the house feel warm and safe. a pie might be a little too much, but these cookies have the amazing pumpkin pie flavor and smell with chocolate. If you want the more pure pie flavor and texture, you can always leave out the chocolate and walnuts! Enjoy!
