Open Sesame is the control panel for Cookie Clicker. It can be opened with a console command, or by changing the name of your bakery.

Opening this panel will secretly award the player the "Cheated cookies taste awful" Shadow Achievement for cheating in cookies, even if the panel's functions are not actually ever used.

The panel has many features, such as spawning golden cookies with whatever power you want. It is a core hack for people who want to "get better than you."  If you click to remove all achievements, you will get rid of the Cheated cookies taste awful. This comes with the downside of removing all the achievements you have gotten legitimately. It also includes features such as debug upgrades, that do various things from making golden cookies spawn rapidly to setting cookie production to 0. Also holding ctrl while clicking a wrinkler will toggle it between its shiny and normal state.


Here are two methods to open the console.

  • You can open the console using this command.
  • You can also add 'saysopensesame' to the end of your bakery's name. For example, "Rachel's Bakery" becomes "Rachel saysopensesame's Bakery", or "Rachelsaysopensesame's Bakery". It is worth noting that if adding this phrase to the end of the name exceeds the character limit, the game will cut off the end of the phrase, and the command will not work. Changing your name afterwards will not close the console unless you refresh the page.

    Open Sesame provides all sorts of commands to apply with just a click (earns cheated cookies taste awful achievement).

There are eleven new debug upgrades in Open Sesame mode. As this is a virtually a hack, they are all ridiculously overpowered. All the upgrades can be toggled on and off at will for the price of seven cookies directly under the Upgrades tab in the Stats menu.
