I’m so happy to be partnering with Coca-Cola to bring you this delicious cookie recipe! Thank you for supporting the brands that make Wine & Glue possible.

If you have been following my blog for a while, you probably know that I lost my mom a few years back. She passed away just a few days before Christmas just hours after we had Gavin. There have been so many challenges that have come with losing my mom, but far and away, the biggest challenge has been being a mom without her. There have been countless times when I have wished that I could just pick up a phone and call her.

But! I have friends. I have the most wonderful friends on the planet. They have kiddos, little kiddos like mine, and they have been there for me through the last nine years of mothering in a way I could have only dreamed of. I have totally come to rely on my co-moms (is that a weird thing to call them . . . you get what I’m saying, right? Like co-workers). They get me, they listen, and they reassure me all.the.time. that I’m not absolutely screwing up every last thing.

On its side, a glass Coca-Cola bottle is right next to two Coca-Cola Cookies.

There are three friends in particular, Cathy, Meaghan (she doesn’t have a blog that I can link to . . . yet), and Rachel, that I lean on super hard, especially around the holidays. We have a tradition that is going on something like seven years of getting together one Saturday every December and baking our tails off making treats, but mainly just hanging out, drinking wine, and talking about all the things that goes into being moms. We listen to Christmas music, we laugh, and we lean on each other. And it is one of my very favorite Christmas traditions. It has made, what could be just a horrible time of year for me, more than bearable. It has made it actually delightful.

So when Coca-Cola asked me to write about who makes my holidays brighter, and who I would like to #ShareACoke with, it is these three who totally popped into my mind right away. How great are these customized glass bottles? I think they are so cute, I can’t wait to give them to my friends with some of these Coca-Cola Cookies! Head over to the #ShareACoke website and you can see how easy it is to customize and order some for all the special people in your life!

Coca-Cola Cookies with Coca-Cola Frosting

Serves: 2 1/2 dozen cookies
(tap # to scale)


  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter at room temperature (see note)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup Coca-Cola at room temperature
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • For frosting
  • 8 TBSPs butter room temperature
  • 1/4 cup Coca-Cola at room temperature
  • 4 cups powdered sugar


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
  • Cream together the butter, brown sugar, and granulate sugar, until light and fluffy, about two minutes.
  • Beat in the vanilla extract, then the egg, then the Coca-Cola, until just combined.
  • Slowly beat in the flour mixture, about a half of a cup at a time, until just combined.
  • Using a 1 1/2 TBSP cookie scoop, scoop cookie dough onto a parchment paper or silicon mat lined baking sheet. The cookies should be about two inches apart to allow for some spreading.
  • Bake for 13 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through baking. Remove from the oven, allow to sit on the pan for about two minutes, then remove to a cooling wrack to cool completely before.
  • To make frosting, beat the butter until it begins to turn creamy, then add the first cup of sugar. Once combined, add the Coca-Cola. Then add in the remaining cups of sugar one at a time. Pipe onto cooled cookies and top with sprinkles.


You know your butter is soft when you can press your finger into it and it makes a dent but doesn't go all the way through. You can cut it up and leave it on the counter for 30 minutes and it will be perfect. Or! You can fill a tall glass with water, microwave it for 30 seconds, empty the water, put it over the butter standing on end, and leave it for 10 minutes.

    Hello Lisa,
    Nice and tasty recipe. I kinda made the cookies a bit naughty. I’m not an alcohol drinker but I love cooking and with liquor, wine and just about anything that is considered alcoholic. Well, as i was mixing the cookie mix, I thought about rum and coke! I make my own white Rum Vanilla Extract and added that to my cookie mixture. For the frosting, I used white Rum. The results… delicious! I’ve used your recipe a few times and they always come out tasty. Well, folks that drink often ask for a Coke and Rum! Now, they can eat it! Lol

    Thank you again and keep up the great work. Tell Coke that I’d love to have bottles as well! Lol. I know that I’m late but eh.. worth a shot…get it.. shot…rum…ok…I’m not a comedian but I can realllllly cook! ????

    Would share a Coke with my wife of over 50 years and will try the recipe. Sounds interesting.

    I tried this recipe and while it makes a very good cookie, myself and others struggle to taste Coca-Cola in them. I don’t own a Soda Stream, but I wonder if the syrup used in those would be concentrated enough to bring the Coke taste into the cookie?

    The cookie is wonderful but I can not taste the coke in them at all same thing with the icing. I am going to try using soda stream syrup and see how that turns out.

    I am at high altitude. My cookies turned out too flat. Any ideas?
