The Big Cookie's regular appearance

The Cookie, or Big Cookie, is an interactable object central to Cookie Clicker's gameplay, producing cookies when clicked on. It refers to the cookie on the left side of the screen. The cookies produced this way count as "hand-made cookies," which are recorded on the stats screen and are used for several achievements and upgrades.

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.

  • 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%.
