The Dawning holiday oven recipes and ingredients - Destiny 2

Learn all of the recipes available in the Dawning, where to find the ingredients, and how to get more Essence of Dawning.


The Dawning holiday is here in Destiny 2 and with it comes a dozen or so recipes for players to bake into cookies to give to people around the Tower. Destiny 2 doesn’t reveal these oven recipes, so it’s up to the player to find them all through trial and error, or refer to a handy cooking recipe so as to avoid any burned goodies.

The Dawning oven recipes

There are currently 15 recipes for players to discover during the Dawning and all of them require various ingredients in order to be crafted. Though it is possible to unlock all of the recipes using trial and error, it can be an expensive endeavour, as each ingredient can be time-consuming to come by.

Destiny 2 The Dawning oven recipes
Eva has returned to the Tower bearing a gifts: an oven that can be used to bake cookies, but only if you follow the recipes!

The table below details each of the cookie types, the recipes used to craft each one, and the recipient whom the cookie should be given. Note that each cookie requires 15 Essence of Dawning to be baked in Eva’s Holiday Oven.

It’s important to note that if players want to unlock all the associated Triumphs, they must bake a Burnt Edge Transit for Master Rahool first. There is currently a problem where if all the other recipes are completed first players will be unable to bake a Burnt Edge Transit. Bungie is aware of this problem but no specifics are given for a fix. Burnt Edge Transit cookies are made by combining two ingreidents that are incompatible. The two ingredients listed below are just the first options available, but there are other variations.

The Dawning ingredient locations

There are 15 ingredients that can be found or purchased that are used to create the 15 recipes. Players looking to bake all of the cookies in the Dawning will need to collect all of the ingredients, some of them a few times. Ingredients can be found out in the wild by killing enemies or purchased from Eva Levante using Essence of Dawning.

The ingredients come in two forms, Uncommon and Rare. Uncommon ingredients can be purchased from Eva Levante for 5 Essence of Dawning while Rare ingredients cost 10. This can be a good option for players who are struggling to find some ingredients or just wish to finish off some recipes quickly.

How to get more Essence of Dawning

Essence of Dawning is an essential ingredient in all of the recipes players will need to make during the holiday event. Each recipe requires 15 of these, meaning players will need to get a total of 225 Essence of Dawning to craft all the recipes, and that's not taking into account if they want to purchase ingredients directly from Eva.

The first stop in getting more Essence of Dawning is to complete Eva Levante’s Dawning bounties. A couple of these bounties reward 5 a piece, which is a nice little bump when just starting. Nearly all activities in Destiny 2 will reward Essence of Dawning, but at the moment, it appears as if playing Mayhem is the best way to get more Essence of Dawning.

A round of Mayhem is extremely quick and pretty fun, and will often yield around 15 Essence of Dawning. Players looking to earn a lot of Essence of Dawning fast should invest their time in Mayhem, after completing all other Challenges for the week. A lot of Essence of Dawning can be earned from the Nightfall, Gambit, and Heroic Strikes – so get those Challenges done before switching to Crucible.

The Dawning is Destiny 2's way of celebrating the end of the year and all that players have accomplished. This year, players can earn some pretty awesome rewards by simply following a few recipes and baking some cookies using Eva's Holiday Oven.
