   "Canapes,"  1890 in OED and M-W.
   The author was a famous restaurateur in Paris.  OED mentions him once, but has zero citations from his book.  Not even the revised OED.

   Take raspt _Gruyere_ and _Parmesan_ cheese in equal quantities, wet them with yolks of eggs, add a little melted butter; mix all well together; beat the whites very well; add them by degrees, stirring them lightly with a wooden spoon; have cases ready, and fill them only half; bake them in an oven heated as for biscuits, and serve hot.
