Ingredients:  
1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 egg, room temperature
1 cup mashed bananas (about 2 large bananas)
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups all-purpose flour
pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground mace or nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup pecans (walnuts and chocolate chips are fine alternatives)

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the egg and continue to beat until the mixture is light and fluffy.

2 In a separate bowl, mix the mashed bananas and baking soda. Let sit for 2 minutes. The baking soda will react with the acid in the bananas which in turn will give the cookies their lift and rise.

Mix the banana mixture into the butter mixture.

3 Whisk together the flour, salt, and spices. Add to the butter and banana mixture and mix until just combined.

4 Fold pecans or chocolate chips (if using) into the batter.

5 Drop in dollops onto parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until nicely golden brown. Let cool on wire racks.
