Destiny 2 Dawning 2020 recipies & ingredients guide

Time to get bakin'!

The Destiny 2 Dawning 2020 event is on now, and in it, Guardians will be tasked to bake a number of recipes. This guide shows you how to make everything and where to get ingredients needed to do it all.

To bake, you’ll need to visit Eva in the Tower and get an oven. Head into your inventory and interact with the oven to add three different ingredients. Got all that? Then it’s time to bake!

Destiny 2 Dawning 2020 recipes

A different roster of NPCs means a slightly different list of receipes this year. They’re as follows, with Essence of Dawning being the third ingredient needed for each recipe:

  • Classic Butter Cookies (Eva Levante): Taken Butter, Superb Texture
  • Chocolate Ship Cookies (Amanda Holliday): Cabal Oil, Null Taste
  • Gentleman’s Shortbread (Devrim Kay): Ether Cane, Perfect Taste
  • Ascendant Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (Eris Morn): Chitin Powder, Finishing Touch
  • Etheric Coldsnap (Variks): Chitin Powder, Electric Flavour
  • Bittersweet Biscotti (Crow): Dark Ether Cane, Balanced Flavours
  • Gjallardoodles (Zavala): Ether Cane, Delicious Explosion
  • Candy Dead Ghosts (The Spider): Dark Ether Cane, Flash of Inspiration
  • Dark Chocolate Motes (The Drifter): Taken Butter, Null Taste
  • Eliksni Birdseed (Hawthorne): Ether Cane, Personal Touch
  • Traveler Donut Holes (Ikora): Cabal Oil, Flash of Inspiration
  • Lavender Ribbon Cookies (Saint-14): Vex Milk, Personal Touch
  • Ill-Fortune Cookies (Petra Venj): Dark Ether Cane, Impossible Heat
  • Infinite Forest Cake (Failsafe): Vex Milk, Impossible Heat
  • Strange Cookies (Xur): Taken Butter, Electric Flavor
  • Telemetry Tapioca (Banshee-44): Vex Milk, Bullet Spray
  • Thousand Layer Cookie (Riven): Taken Butter, Delicious Explosion
  • Vanilla Blades (Lord Shaxx): Cabal Oil, Sharp Flavor
  • Blueberry Crumblers (Shaw Han): Ether Cane, Bullet Spray
  • Bright Dusted Snowballs (Tess Everis): Chitin Powder, Multifaceted Flavours
  • Burnt Edge Transits (Master Rahool): Any 2 combinations not listed above

You’ll need to make the Burnt Edge Transits before you masterwork your oven, as it’s not technically a ‘recipe’ (and that’s all you can make in a masterworked oven).
