Blogathon 2015 #Day30 - Epic cookie baking fail!

I am an ok cook! I bake sometimes, and the results till last night were pretty good.. And then came the epic cookie baking disaster!!
To start with, I tumbled upon a 3-ingredient cookie recipe... which looked good :)
1 egg, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup peanut butter... mix well.. bake for 12 minutes and awesome cookies ready!

The baker had beautifully explained how to use a fork to make that texture on the cookies...
I went home all excited and happy hoping to surprise the hubby and the BIL with yummy cookies...
Got all the ingredients ready , not that there was much to do! Put on my apron and set the oven to pre-heat at 180 degrees..

While the egg was beaten nicely and became fluffy I added the sugar... No matter how much I mixed them, the sugar did not mix properly, I could see the grains in the fluffy egg... nevertheless I added the peanut butter... After some more whisking and mixing, I was expecting a dough, not exactly the flour dough but on similar lines, but this mixture was just semi solid... tasted yumm.. but I wasn't sure about the texture and thickness... I kept my calm and just carried on...

The sugar granules were still visible :( I took out my baking mould.. which was too small and heart shaped, I could place batter barely for three cookies in it and no matter what I did, the fork pattern did not appear as the batter wasn't thick enough.. 10 minutes later and this was what I got... epic fail!

Cheesy goeey hardened mushy peanut butter pieces... with sugar granules.. very very sweet and not at all the intended cookies!!
Nailed it!!

I also made some red sauce pasta and that turned out really yummy.... :)
