Sift all dry ingredients together. Place molasses and honey in pan and warm - don't boil. Add butter and stir to melt. Cool; add egg. Stir into dry ingredients - do not overmix. Let stand 15 minutes. Roll into little balls. Bake on greased cookie sheet 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees. If desired, roll in powdered sugar while still warm.
