I cant believe I made bad tasting cookies!

So, I tried a new recipe for cookies.
http://allrecipes.com/recipe/old-german-honey-cookies/detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Title&e11=german%20honey%20cookies&e8=Quick%20Search&event10=1&e7=Home%20Page

I used white whole wheat flour. The dough didn't taste sweet enough, so I rolled the uncooked cookies in granulated sugar. I baked them and they turned out thick and dense and cakey and not very sweet. I tried flattening them out, thinking that they wouldn't taste so bad if they were more like crackers. They tasted the same, just less thick.
Now I have about 2 dozen, dense, not tasty cookies. What do I do? Scrap them all? Maybe frost them?
Any ideas would be welcome!
