Destiny 2 Dawning Recipes (2019): Gifts And Rewards
Destiny 2 is still celebrating the festive season--here's how to make Chocolate Ship Cookies, Vanilla Blades, Eliksni Birdseed, and all the rest of this year's baking recipes in the 2019 holiday event.
The end of Destiny 2's annual holiday event, The Dawning, is rapidly approaching after nearly a month of celebration. The Dawning runs until the weekly reset on Tuesday, January 14, which means there's only days left to complete bounties, unlock special rewards, and bake lots of treats. The key component of the event is Eva's Holiday Oven 2.0, an item that lets you bake cookies using recipes you'll discover as you combine ingredients earned throughout the solar system.
Those cookies and baked goods are then handed over to various NPCs--including some you might not expect, such as Last Wish raid boss Riven--to complete bounties and quests, earning you various rewards. Because you won't want to waste any ingredients you've gathered, we've put together a full list of all Dawning recipes, as well a list of ways to acquire the items you'll need.
If you want to do a lot of baking, it'll require some grinding. You'll earn ingredients in a variety of ways, but they almost all involve killing enemies--what you obtain will depend on the enemy type (eg, kill Vex to get Vex Milk) or what you use to kill them (Personal Touch comes from melee kills, Sharp Flavor from sword kills, and so on). No matter what you're baking, you'll also need 15 Essence of Dawning for each recipe; this drops to 10 once you masterwork the oven by baking (and thus discovering) each available recipe.
You'll get some Essence of Dawning for completing activities (including public events), but another reliable but limited source for it is the weekly bounties that Eva offers. You can see how to specifically gather up ingredients like Ether Cane, Delicious Explosion, and more below.

Many recipes return from last year, but there are new ones as well, including those that will have you delivering the end result to characters like Saint-14 and raid boss Riven. We've assembled all the ones we know--including Vanilla Blades for Shaxx, Chocolate Ship Cookies for Amanda, and Eliksni Birdseed for Hawthorne, which are all part of the Cheer Up quest you'll get early on. For more, check out our guide to the A Matter of Time quest.

The Dawning 2019 Rewards
As noted above, when you turn in your first baked treat to Zavala and return to Eva, she'll give you a rewards package. The most item inside is the new submachine gun, but it isn't the only thing that awaits you.
Eva gives you the Spreading Cheer quest. One of the steps to that involves baking a total of 50 gifts, and this thankfully includes progress you made during 2018's event. Complete all three steps and you'll earn the Alpine Dash Sparrow.
An additional sparrow is up for grabs, but you'll need to complete additional quests from Eva to upgrade its speed--it starts out quite slow. This will involve baking and delivering a ton of cookies, so make sure to grind out the necessary materials as soon as possible.
