- "Have 4 golden cookies simultaneously"
- "Fairly rare, considering cookies don't even have leaves"
A common misconception is that this achievement requires you to have 4 different golden cookie effects at once; this is incorrect, and instead requires 4 to be on screen at once. This is a fairly easy shadow achievement and can be attempted fairly early on in the game, but is recommended at around the mid-game, especially after enough Sugar Lumps have been harvested to be able to attempt this, as sugar lumps are very valuable. Another misconception is that you need to have only Golden Cookies on screen for the achievement, but both Wrath Cookies and Golden Cookies work.
There are a few strategies for this achievement, but this is the easiest strategy:
The strategy is to wait for a double golden cookie spawn (from the Distilled Essence of Redoubled Luck heavenly upgrade). Then, spawn a golden cookie from the Force the Hand of Fate spell from the Grimoire. After this, you could either spend a sugar lump on the Grimoire to refill the magic and use the spell again, or you could sell your Wizard Towers until you have twenty one towers left, which causes you to have enough magic to use the spell again.
If you have not unlocked the Distilled essence of redoubled luck upgrade, you can instead wait for a normal golden cookie spawn, use the Force the Hand of Fate spell, use a lump on the Grimoire, use the spell again, sell your wizard towers until you have 21 towers, and then use the spell again.
Another option is to use Krumblor's aura Dragon Orbs right before a golden cookie spawns, then use the Force the Hand of Fate spell, sell your wizard towers until you have 21 towers, and then use the spell again. Check Spawning mechanism to see how you can time using the Dragon Orbs aura.
If you happen to have a Caramelized Sugar Lump growing at the time, that is likely the easiest time to go for this achievement; once it is ripe, wait for a Golden Cookie to spawn, use Force the Hand of Fate, use a lump on the Grimoire, use the spell again, then harvest the caramelized lump, which resets the cooldown on the grimoire, allowing you to spend another lump to refill magic and cast the spell for the third time.
