  2. To make the Cinnamon Chips; melt white chocolate in a microwave and add cinnamon. Stir until combined.
  3. Line a cookie sheet with baking paper. Spread the mixture very thinly over the paper and refrigerate until set. Once the chocolate has hardened break into little chips.
  4. Next prepare the Cinnamon Sugar; simply combine the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Reserve the mixture in a bowl for coating the cookies.
  5. For the Cookies; cream butter and sugar with your hand mixer until the mixture is pale, light and fluffy.
  6. Add the eggs one at a time and mix until combined. Add dry ingredients and the pre-prepared cinnamon chips. Mix on low speed until ingredients are combined.
  7. Roll mixture into 50 small balls and press each ball into the cinnamon sugar ensuring that each cookie is completely coated.
  8. Place on a lined cookie sheet, giving plenty of space to spread.
  9. Bake for 10-12 mins. Remove when golden to give a biscuit with a crisp crust and a soft cake centre. Cool on tray for two minutes and then transfer to cooling rack.
