Chewy Ginger Wedges (Trees!)

Credit L for this idea -- With sprinkles the wedges became decorated Christmas trees for the school bake sale today! This is one of our favorite recipes, which is from Pillsbury's Fast and Healthy magazine (May/June 1993). (And yes, that is last year's Costco wire ribbon...with gold trees!)


1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup molassess
1 egg white
2 cups flour
2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon (Penzeys Ceylon for pow!)
1 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cloves
Heat oven to 375. Grease bottoms only of two 9" pie pans. In large bowl, combine brown sugar and oil. Beat 2 minutes or until well-blended. Add molassses and egg white. Beat an additional 2 minutes. Stir flour and all remaining ingredients into brown sugar mixture, blend well. Divide dough into 2 parts; press in bottom of greased pans. (Sprinkle with sprinkes/jimmies and press lightly into surface.) Press around edge with fork. Score each lightly into 16 wedges. Bake at 375 for 13-15 minutes or just until edges begin to brown and center is set. My oven I do 6/6 minutes, switching racks. Cool, cut into wedges.
