Apees

(These are cousins of the sand tart-simple cookies but with a complicated history.  There is the story that a young woman named Ann Page had made the first of these cookies, scratching her initial on each one, hence AP's.  But if Ann did invent them one thing is sure, the Pennsylvania Dutch took to them with eagerness.  For any number of recipes can be found, labeled variously apees, apeas, apace, apice, epise, epees, and eepies, to name a few.)Pennsylvania Dutch Cooking from AlansKitchen.com
