Roll dough into small balls (about 1 1/2 inch in diameter) and place 1 inch apart on a baking sheet.

Bake in the oven for 5 minutes.  Remove cheese cookies from the oven, and press your thumb into the top of each ball, creating a well.  Spoon 1 teaspoon pepper jam into the well.  Bake for another 5 minutes, or until edges are lightly brown.
