Ann Hiatt, rug department manager of Salem Creek in Winston-Salem, N.C., wins capel centennial recipe contest!

As part of Capel Rugs’ year-long 100th anniversary celebration, we invited the company’s 5,000-plus customers to submit treasured recipes that have been favorites of their own families for generations. Along with the recipes, contest participants shared the stories behind their dishes — the history and experiences that make them so special.
“This cookie recipe is not only delicious, it’s also more than 100 years old,” said Vickie Carder, Capel Rugs’ sales representative for North Carolina. “It’s a perfect match for celebrating Capel’s own 100th anniversary year.”


"THE WORLD'S BEST COOKIE"

Ingredients:
1 1/3 Cups Butter
1 1/2 Cups Sugar
3 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Soda
2 Tablespoons of hot water
3 1/4 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 Cups of pecan pieces
1 1/2 cups of raisins


Directions:
Cream softened butter and sugar, add eggs one at a time and beat in well. Add soda dissolved in hot water. Beat in. Sift flour with salt and cinnamon, add gradually and beat in well. Add nuts and raisins. Drop on buttered cookie sheet by spoonful. Bake 12-15 minutes at 345 degrees.


Ann's Story:
"My father typed a copy of this recipe to me in November of 1985 and wrote that it was a 75 year old recipe then! It was his grandmothers, so my great grandmother. He was a wonderful cook/baker and our home growing up always had a tin of these cookies in the kitchen.
