Sometimes you just want to have something sweet, even if it is only in a game.

Cookies are an easy-to-make food item that can be good to have on you as a treat in Minecraft.

The good thing is that once you have the ingredients you can make plenty of them – enough to even share.

Let’s see what ingredients we need to make cookies and how to bake them. Here’s how to make cookies in Minecraft.

Preparing the Ingredients

Before you can make cookies, you will first have to get the ingredients for them, which may include some farming.

The main ingredients of a cookie are wheat and cocoa beans. Growing wheat is an easy enough task as getting the seeds is rather simple.

Growing cocoa beans can be tricky, because they are a little hard to find as they can only be found or fished out in jungle biomes. Though, once you have them you can farm them just as easily as wheat, if not even easier.

  • 2 wheat
  • 1 cocoa beans

If you have grown and gathered your ingredients, then doing the recipe on the crafting table is likely going to be very simple and easy for you to do.

This recipe grants you a total of 8 cookies.

You just have to arrange the ingredients on the crafting table like you can see in the image below.

Buying Cookies

There may be a chance you will struggle with finding the exact ingredients you need to bake your cookies.

So if you do not have the time to grow the ingredients and craft the cookies you can try venturing to a village with your emeralds and see if you can find a high level farmer villager.

These villagers may sometimes sell you a whole of 18 cookies for just 3 emeralds.

What Cookies Are Used For

Like we have said, cookies are a food item. This means they can be eaten by players to restore their hunger for 2 hunger points and grant a bit of hunger saturation.

Cookies can also be composted in a composter, but are not as viable as using seeds or other plant based items.

However, the most important thing about cookies is the one negative side effect they can have.

Parrot dying

If you feed a parrot a cookie it will instantly kill the mob. This is an entirely unique mechanic in Minecraft as no other mobs have a weakness like this toward any consumable item. It only applies to parrots, too.

This is a mechanic that is likely included in the game to be educational to younger players.

What to do Next

There are several recipes that can be made by growing wheat, such as bread and cake.

If you grow pumpkins you can also have a try at making a pumpkin pie in your Minecraft kitchen.
