I attempted to make Turkish Delight at home for the first time. The first effort was a complete failure. Effort two seemed to be improved but it's not even close to set after 12 hours. Can you tell me how I might salvage it? [more inside]

I can't seem to find a recipe I'm fairly certain I've seen in the past for peanut butter cups. I seem to recall that it involved not using any actual peanut butter, but starting with peanuts and grinding them up kinda coarsely with something else in them to get that weird, chunky, not-quite-peanut-butter consistency to the filling. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

While on exchange in Russia (near Novgorod), I was served two foods that I loved but have not been able to find again, and don't know the names for. First was a confection -- semi-dried but juicy berries covered in powdered sugar, about the size of blueberries, but red with lots of little seeds, that came in a small box. Second was a cake that seemed to be made of dozens of layered pancakes with some sort of cream or frosting in between. Anyone know what these are, and where I can find them or a recipe for them in the US?
