Cherry Sliced Icebox Cookie Fail

I already threw the copy of the recipe away and didn't take a picture of the cookies  - it wasn't pretty anyway.  I had such high hopes for them, but it wasn't meant to be.  The cookies, even with the dough chilled, spread too much, then stuck to my Silpat.  After we pried them off, everyone kept asking "Now, what kind of cookies are these?".  Sigh. 
I didn't want to throw the batter out, but I knew it was too soft.  I just added a teensy bit more flour and a tad bit of baking powder, spread it in a 13x9, and after 25 minutes or so, I had Cherry Bars.  I guess I could have slathered some leftover frosting on them, but I didn't think of that at the time!
It didn't matter - at least they got eaten.  Have you ever done that?  
Recycled a cookie dough that wasn't going to work as cookies?

So sad to have a cookie fail! I slaved over macarons for a baby shower recently, and it was a giant flop! I tried to disassociate myself from them, so no one even knew I brought them. :)
