Just a pinch of cinnamon takes white chocolate to even greater heights of flavour. It also acts as a delicious counterpoint to the gingery spice of these cookies, which are perfectly crispy on the outside and delectably chewy on the inside.

Use our Basic Ginger Cookie Dough recipe.
Roll dough by 1 tbsp into balls; place, 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheets. Press thumb into centre of each ball to make well.
Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven just until edges are firm to the touch, 10 to 12 minutes. (Wells will have mostly filled in.) Remove from oven; using back of round 1 tsp measure, gently re-press wells. Let cool on pans on racks for 5 minutes. Transfer to racks; let cool completely.
Meanwhile, in heatproof bowl over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt white chocolate, stirring until smooth. Stir in cinnamon. Spoon about 1 tsp into each well. Let stand until chocolate is firm, about 1 hour.
Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container and store for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 2 weeks.
