Destiny 2 Dawning Recipes (2022): Gifts, Rewards, And Changes

The Dawning holiday event is back in Destiny 2 with new rewards and gift recipes to learn.


Destiny 2 is bringing The Dawning festivities back once more, allowing you to bake all sorts of cookies for both old and new faces. The event runs until the weekly reset on Tuesday, January 3, and there are a few tweaks to keep in mind compared to previous editions -- including the addition of Event Cards introduced this year, as well as new recipes like Lucent Crunch and Candy Dead Ghosts.

As per usual, you can kickstart the event in the Tower by talking to Eva Levante in the center of the hub. She's going to give you access to Eva's Holiday Oven, and task you with baking a cookie for Zavala. Once that's a wrap, you'll be able to repeat the action with both him and a couple dozen characters across the system.

Recipes don't need to be all discovered this time around, but it's once again recommended that you focus on getting the Masterworked Holiday Oven as soon as possible. For this, go ahead and craft Lucent Crunch, for which we have the recipe below.

You'll also need another ingredient called Essence of Dawning, which you'll also earn from completing activities throughout the game. 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.

There are more rewards for completing the Cookie Delivery Helper seasonal quest as well, but as a particular mention to the 2022 edition, upgrading your event card will grant you a Ghost Shell, emotes, a transmat effect, and more. The later isn't free, however, and it'll cost you 1,000 Silver, so up to you if you're interested in the rewards or not.
