Gingerbread Wedges

Makes 16 wedges

Notes: You can make the gingerbread up to 1 day ahead; store rounds airtight at room temperature. Freeze if storing longer. Prep and Cook Time: about 40 minutes.

 1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
 1/4 cup (1/8 lb.) unsalted butter, at room temperature
 1/2 cup light molasses
 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
 2 teaspoons ground ginger
 1 teaspoon baking soda
 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
 1/3 cup water
Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat sugar and butter until well blended and creamy. Add molasses; beat until blended.

Step 2

In another bowl, mix flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and cloves.

Step 3

Add about a third of the flour mixture to the butter mixture; beat on low speed until blended. Add about a third of the water; beat until incorporated. Repeat to add all of the flour mixture and water, beating just until incorporated. Gather mixture with floured hands and form into a soft ball.

Step 4

Spray bottoms of two 8- or 9-inch pie pans with cooking oil spray. Divide dough in half and press a portion level in each pan. With a floured knife, cut each round into eight wedges.

Step 5

Bake until top springs back when lightly touched, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool about 5 minutes in pan, then invert onto a rack to cool completely.
