Retiring word

aebleskive noun
kind of spherical pancake with apple filling
I loved this word---it's hard to figure out what it might be, unless you know some Scandinavian derivations. Lots of teams went "out" on this word in the '07 Bee. However, we are not going to use it this year, because Williams-Sonoma has started selling an aebleskive pan--sure to make it a household word, literally. But it's still a great word.
