Destiny 2 The Dawning recipes 2021: How to get all ingredients

Lloyd Coombes. Last updated: Dec 16, 2021

Destiny 2’s Dawning event has returned for 2021, and that means there are goodies to bake for characters throughout the game. Here are all of the Destiny 2 Dawning 2021 recipes we’ve found so far.

Destiny 2 received new content in the Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack last week, but there are more treats for players as The Dawning has arrived. The long-running celebration of Christmas in the game usually revolves around baking food with Eva Levante to spread cheer throughout the solar system, and this year is no different.

Here’s how to get your hands on each ingredient in The Dawning, and how to use them to make items for the denizens of the Tower and beyond.

Destiny 2 The Dawning 2021 ingredients

In many ways, you’ll earn the following ingredients just by playing Destiny 2 and switching up your arsenal. Every recipe will also require an amount of Essence of Dawning, which is earned by completing activities – we’d recommend Legend Lost Sectors for a fairly quick way to earn them.

A big thanks to for the help.

How to bake items

Items are baked with Eva’s Holiday Oven, which can be found in your quest menu. Once you bake every recipe once, you’ll likely be able to Masterwork it – although we’ll confirm this shortly.

In the past, masterworking the oven reduced the amount of Essence of Dawning required to bake goodies. We’ll see if that holds true this time around.
