The contest, part of Capel Rugs’ year-long 100th-anniversary celebration, invited the company’s customers to submit recipes that have passed down generations. Along with the recipes, contest participants shared the history and stories behind their dishes.

Hiatt’s winning recipe, “The World’s Best Cookie,” which combines pecans and raisins, was passed to her by her father. He typed it up for Hiatt in 1985, at which point it was already 75 years old. “It was my great grandmother’s,” said Hiatt. “(My father) was a wonderful cook/baker and our home growing up always had a tin of these cookies in the kitchen.”
