Is my dough ruined?

Decided to try and make Peanut Butter cookies. I wasn't paying attention and I was mixing my butter and brown sugar and had the stove preheating. But I was mixing it on top of the stove.

So of course some of the butter melted a little. Now it seems that the dough will not harden enough. Is this dough ruined and useless? Or perhaps if I leave it overnight will it recover?

As long as the ingredient amounts were correct, you should be Ok. The dough "melts" as it's baking anyway due to the fat liquifying. Your cookies might be a little flatter than usual, but should taste just fine.

I would put the dough in the fridge for an hour or two, then mix it again.
