it seemed like something was missing. They tasted like sweet bisquits. Maybe I did something wrong?

I put in double the amount of vanilla, make a thumb print into the middle of each cookie, fill with jam or Nutella (a hazelnut spread) and seal the top with a little dough. Caution...make sure...

These cookies are okay, not wonderful. I added a little bit more sugar than what it called for and also added some nutmeg to give them more flavor.
