This recipe is inspired by French pastry chef Christophe Michalak's cookie recipe.
I know it's hard, but you need to let the cookies rest at least 10 minutes after baking as they'll continue to cook from the heat of the tray. 
It may be tempting to eat the raw cookie dough but it's never a good idea to consume raw flour. Raw flour can contain dangerous pathogens that may make you sick.
