A tasty treat can make certain moments in our lives more special and during a time when we can't celebrate in traditional ways, people are turning to sweets.

Grace Siegert of Kentucky isn't just baking for her family. Siegert makes custom cookies that have become very popular during the pandemic. Recently she's been selling about 20 dozen cookies a week, "Everyone wants a personalized dozen for their special someone because they can't have a party or because they can't go anywhere," said Grace.

Cookie makers big and small are seeing a boost in business. The group Top Data says demand for cookies is up 25% during the pandemic. In fact, one in five Americans admit to eating more than three cookies a day.
