Yield: About 20, 3-inch knot cookies

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups graham flour
3 tablespoons graham cracker crumbs
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup (packed) light-brown sugar
1/2 cup molasses
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
