1cupunsalted buttersoftened to room temperature
1 1/2cupgranulated sugar
2large eggsroom temperature
2 3/4cupall-purpose flour
1 1/4cupwhite chocolate chips
In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the butter and granulated sugar until combined. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until light and fluffy.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter/sugar and mix until just combined. Stir in the white chocolate chips. Cover the dough and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour or overnight.
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 400. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Combine 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl. Scoop 1 1/2 tablespoons dough (I use a medium cookie scoop) and roll into a ball. Roll cookie dough balls in cinnamon/sugar mixture and place onto baking sheet.
Using a glass with a flat bottom, smash the cookies down about 1/2 way. If the cookies start sticking to the glass, dipping it in the cinnamon/sugar after every couple cookies will prevent this.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cookies will be lightly browned around the edges and puffy but will fall when you take them out of the oven. Let cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
I slightly modified the recipe my mom used and added white chocolate chips.
