In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients: flour, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
In a mixing stand, cream together the butter and both sugars for at least 2 minutes, until smooth and creamy.
Add in the egg, mix until blended.
Add in molasses and mix until fully blended.
Slowly add in the dry ingredients, 1/4 cup at a time, and only mix until all ingredients are well blended. Be careful not to over mix.
Shape dough into a disc shape and wrap with plastic wrap. Chill in the refrigerator for 45 minutes to one hour.
Remove from refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for about 5 minutes, until soft enough to roll easily.
Form small round balls and roll in raw sugar.
Place on prepared baking sheet and gently tap down.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8 - 12 minutes until slightly golden brown.
Makes approximately 4 dozen.
