Why You Should Bake Cookies in Dawning 2023

Once you’ve discovered each Dawning recipe, you’ll unlock the Masterwork version of Eva’s Holiday Oven 2.1. The upgrade reduces the overall cost of each recipe, making farming them much easier.

All Destiny 2 Dawning 2023 Cookie Ingredients

There are three main ingredients you’ll need to make cookies in The Dawning 2023: 

  1. The main ingredient that drops from killing enemies on various worlds.
  2. A secondary ingredient that comes from getting kills and activating abilities.
  3. Essence of Dawning, which is received from any activity.

Main Ingredients

Every enemy type in Destiny 2 (except for other Guardians in the Crucible) has a corresponding cookie ingredient that can drop when it’s killed. These drops are low chance, so I’m afraid you’ll need to grind for them all. Below is a list of each enemy type and the cookie ingredient they drop. Every enemy type — boss, miniboss, ultra, red bar — has a chance to drop an ingredient of their given type as well.

  • Vex: Vex Milk
  • Fallen: Ether Cane
  • Cabal: Cabal Oil
  • Hive: Chitin Powder
  • Taken: Taken Butter 
  • Scorn: Dark Ether Cane 

Secondary Ingredients

Secondary ingredients drop based on the way you kill an enemy, not the enemy type itself. Secondary ingredients are more common, too. Below is an alphabetical list of how to acquire each one.

  • Balanced Flavors: Kill enemies with a scout rifle, sniper, or a bow. Precision kills aren’t required.
  • Bullet Spray: Kill enemies with submachine guns, light machine guns, or auto rifles.
  • Dark Frosting: Kill any enemy with Stasis damage from any source.
  • Delicious Explosion: Kill enemies with grenade abilities and rocket or grenade launchers.
  • Electric Flavor: Kill enemies with Arc damage from any Guardian source, either weapon or ability.
  • Finishing Touch: Kill an enemy with a finisher move, default or premium.
  • Flash of Inspiration: Generate Orbs of Light from any Guardian source, including Masterworked weapons and Super abilities.
  • Impossible Heat: Kill enemies with Solar damage from any Guardian source, either weapon or ability.
  • Multifaceted Flavors: Kill two or more enemies in quick succession (Destiny 2 counts these as multikills).
  • Null Taste: Kill enemies with Void damage from any Guardian source, either weapon or ability.
  • Perfect Taste: Kill enemies with precision damage (headshots or shots to a critical point).
  • Personal Touch: Kill enemies with a melee attack. It doesn’t need to be an activated ability; any melee kill will do.
  • Pinch of Light: Pick up Orbs of Light from any Guardian source, either masterwork weapon-created or generated by friendly Guardian Super.
  • Sharp Flavor: Kill enemies with swords.
  • Superb Texture: Kill enemies with any Super ability.

All Dawning Cookie Recipes

Dawning cookies travel light years and pass between dimensions to reach their intended recipients. You’ll need 15 Essence of the Dawning to bake any of these cookies or only 10 Essence once you’ve discovered all the recipes and Masterworked the Oven. In the event you get a recipe wrong, you’ll receive Burnt Edge Transits, which you can take to Master Rahool the Cryptarch at the Tower to refund any spent Essence of the Dawning.

For Dawning 2023, you’ll see all the ingredients to any recipe you don’t already have, but we’ve listed them here for completeness. Here’s an alphabetical list of each cookie and what it takes to bake.
