   I was doing research on the Pennsylvania Gazette CD-ROM in NYU just now when the screen when dead and couldn't be revived.  Nothing works this week.
   DARE's first citation for "apee" is in 1830.  It's from ANNALS OF PHILADELPHIA AND PENNSYLVANIA, and if you type all that with "Ann Page" you'll find it easily enough on the web.
   Various food sites (including Foodtv.com, which of course will never have me on) have "apee" and state "dating from the 1800s."

   ...Cheese-cakes, Puddings, Jumbles, Jellies, Pies, Tarts, Custards, Sugar Biscuit, Rusk, Apees, Pound Cake, Queen Cake, and every thing of the kind, at the lowest rates, and in the best manner. (...)
