Collection by Beth Beyer McCulloch


"The chief part of the stories, however, turned upon the favorite spectre of Sleepy Hollow, the Headless Horseman, who had been heard several times of late, patrolling the country; and, it was said, tethered his horse nightly among the graves in the churchyard." - Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Doughnuts, pretzels, coleslaw, and the treats that became “cookies” are all of Dutch origins. These yeast-leavened bits of dough were dropped from the end of a spoon to form irregularly shaped balls. The Dutch served these at Christmas and other special occasions. They are mentioned as part of the party buffet in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (IRL Kinderhook, NY).
