If you’re less about shooting and more about cooking, then Destiny 2‘s Dawning event may have a special place in your heart. The event has players deliver cookies to several NPCs to spread the Dawning cheer, and guardians can spread the spirit to a wide range of characters—from Petra Venj to Riven of a Thousand Voices.

Each NPC has their own favorite cookie, and will only accept that specific delicacy. Of course, different treats have different ingredients and players have to gather those by taking down foes in specific manners. After getting the necessary ingredients, all it takes is some Dawning Essence and the cookies will be ready to deliver.

Handing in those cookies is an easy endeavor in nearly all cases. You just need to interact with the vendor to deliver it and get a gift in return, which can contain Dawning weapons or items. In 2021, players can also spend Dawning Spirit to focus their gifts into specific rewards, provided they meet the prerequisites.

This year, players don’t have to deliver gifts to Riven, which means they’re spared having to go to the Last Wish raid just to hand in cookies to one of the bosses in the game. They can also gift cookies to Mara Sov while she’s is the H.E.L.M. and send cookies to Ada-1, who wasn’t around last Dawning.

Here’s a list of all the NPCs you can hand cookies to and their respective locations. With the exception of Riven, they are all marked on your map.
