Chill for 15 minutes.

While the bases are chilling, add the soft cheese to a bowl with the vanilla bean paste, the sugar and double cream and beat thoroughly with a wooden spoon.

Spoon 3 tbsp mixture on top of each base and level with a teaspoon.

Top with 2 tbsp jam in each jar and level as before.
