Banana Split Cookies

1/2 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup mashed bananas
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Beat in the eggs and mashed banana. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and cloves; blend into the banana mixture. Stir in the nuts. Cover, and chill for at least 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until no imprint remains when touched. Cool on wire racks.
