Those little cheese cakes

with pastry on bottom, rasperry jam in the middle, and sponge on top. Can't google a recipe cause "normal" cheesecake recipes come up. Any-one have a recipe. Just made bacon & egg pie, and have lots of pastry left over.

They are called 'bakewell tarts'. I don't have a recipe but you could google that.
