Cookies are a food item that was introduced in Beta 1.4, version 0.9.0 (PE), and the first versions of the Console Editions. Cookies restore one Foodbaricon.png when eaten. They were hard to obtain until update 1.3 was released which made Cocoa Beans, one of the ingredients, a lot easier to find. Farmer villagers will sell cookies for emeralds.

Using the crafting recipe just once will give a player eight cookies, which will make it possible to heal eight Foodbaricon.png of hunger in a single batch.

Feeding a cookie to a Parrot will immediately poison the parrot and cause it to die. Placing a cookie in a Composter has an 85% chance to raise its level by 1.

  • Can be made into 8 cookies using just one cocoa bean and two pieces of wheat.
  • Cocoa beans are easy to find in a Jungle biome.
  • Wheat is easy to grow, and their seeds can be found easily.
  • They are a renewable resource.


  • They will only restore 0.4 saturation points.
  • Wheat requires a lot of time to grow, but you can speed up the process by using bone meal.
  • If a player is not close to a jungle and they do not have a cocoa bean farm, cocoa beans will not be readily available.
  • If fed to a parrot, the Parrot will be poisoned.


  • Cookies were the only stack-able food item at the time of their introduction in Beta 1.4.
  • As of 1.3.1, cookies are easier to make because of the cocoa bean's farming mechanics.
  • Cookies can sometimes be obtained through trading with villagers.
  • In some of the 1.12 snapshots, cookies could be fed to Parrots (a reference to the phrase "Polly wants a cracker"[1]) to tame them.
    • To avoid misleading players playing the game[2], seeds were given this function, and cookies were changed to instantly kill parrots and emit poison particles around the dying bird.
