   Position a rack in the center and preheat oven to
   350øF. Lightly butter baking sheets. In a double
   boiler over hot - not simmering - water, melt the
   butter and 8 ounces of the white chocolate, stirring
   frequently. Set aside and let cool until tepid.
   In a large bowl, beat the eggs until light and frothy.
   Beat in the sugars until the mixture is light and
   fluffy, about 3 minutes. Blend in the tepid white
   chocolate mixture and the vanilla.
   In a double boiler over simmering water, melt the
   cream cheese, stirring occasionally. Blend into the
   white chocolate mixture. In a medium bowl, combine the
   flour, baking soda, and cinnamon; blend into the white
   chocolate mixture. Fold in the remaining white
   chocolate, semisweet chocolate, and hazelnuts. Spoon
   by heaping tablespoonfuls, two inches apart, onto the
   prepared pans and bake until golden brown and firm to
   the touch, about 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the cookies
   to wire racks and cool completely. Store in an
   airtight container at room temperature.
