Cookie Clicker Wiki

The Big Cookie's regular appearance

The Cookie, or Big Cookie, refers to the cookie on the left side of the screen. Clicking it produces cookies. The cookies produced this way count as "hand-made cookies," which are recorded on the stats screen and the number of which are important for unlocking certain achievements and upgrades. The number of clicks on the cookie is also recorded.

When the cookie is clicked, it momentarily decreases slightly in size, produces a small cookie particle effect, and displays a number that fades away while floating up to the top of the screen, indicating how many cookies the player earns from clicking the cookie. These can be disabled in the settings.

The cookie is destroyed and reformed during the process of Ascension.

Grandma Cookie[]


The "imperfect" Big Cookie with the grandma face on it.

It is possible to turn the cookie into a cookie with a grandma face on it by copying this code into the console:


To remove it without refreshing the page, use this code.




Orteil's head fades away after appearing due to a click.

  • In the game's coding, the Big Cookie is referred to as the "perfectCookie," and the "Grandma Cookie" is referred to as the "imperfectCookie."
  • There is a 1/10,000 chance that when clicking on the Big Cookie, Orteil's head will appear instead of a random cookie type. Naming yourself "Ortiel," a common misspelling of Orteil, guarantees replacement of every cookie particle generated, including those by Wrinklers, along with draining your CpS by 2%.
  • In the Mobile App, by tapping on the Big Cookie and spinning your finger around it, it shrinks and can be moved around. This is how you can get the Cookie-dunker Achievement in that version.
