This cheesy thumbprint appetizer is a cheddar cheese cookie filled with homemade onion bacon jam.
Blend cheese, flour, butter, salt, and garlic powder in your food processor until dough is a coarse-meal texture and forms into a ball. If your dough doesn't seem to come together just keep processing until it does.
Remove the dough from the KitchenAid food processor, form a tight ball, cover in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
Remove the dough from the refrigerator and form 1 1/2 inch balls. Place them 1 inch apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Remove from oven and allow to cool to room temperature. These cheddar cookie appetizers can be served warm, cold, or room temperature. (We love them warm!)
