Destiny 2 Dawning Recipes 2020: Ingredients & Rewards

by | Dec 15, 2020

The Dawning is back again and comes with the usual wide selection of cookies to bake and give to the various Destiny 2 characters across the universe, including Ikora and Lord Shaxx.

It’s worth noting this is the first Dawning event since Bungie removed entire planets and put them into the Destiny Content Vault. This means the cookies previously reserved for Sloan in Titan, Asher Mir in IO, etc, won’t be returning.

In their place, new cookies for Shaw Han and Variks have appeared.

In any case, this post covers every single Cookie recipe for this year’s Dawning, the ingredients you will need, and the rewards.

And finally, the rewards. For as much as we love to spread joy (and cookies!) throughout the universe, we also want some cool new loot!
