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.

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.

Coca-Cola Cookies with Coca-Cola Frosting

Yield: 2 1/2 dozen cookies

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
  3. Cream together the butter, brown sugar, and granulate sugar, until light and fluffy, about two minutes.
  4. Beat in the vanilla extract, then the egg, then the Coca-Cola, until just combined.
  5. Slowly beat in the flour mixture, about a half of a cup at a time, until just combined.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

Notes

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.

    Thank you for this giveaway oppotunity

  2. kesha says

    I would love to share a Coke with my daddy. He is my best friend. We do lots of things together and he is my world. He makes all of my days happy when I am down. Although I am grown now I will ALWAYS be his little girl! 😊

  3. Margaret Weston says

    This recipe looks great, I can’t wait to try. We have a cookie exchange at work and this looks like my new addition.

  4. Martha Jones says

    Losing loved ones is NEVER easy at any time of year, but losing someone (especially your mother) so close to Christmas is like adding insult to injury. I think I may know how you feel. I lost my dad unexpectedly, five days before Christmas in 1999. He died pretty much instantly, which was a blessing. But sixteen years later, I still miss him and wish I could have had just five more minutes with him, knowing what I know now, to say goodbye. Friends and family make things bearable and it helps to know that I’m not the only one who misses him.

    Now, these cookies look WONDERFUL. I can’t wait to taste them! Anyone around when they’re done MAY get to try them, too. Those who aren’t? Too bad, so sad for them! :^D

  5. Lynda Labatte says

    I would love to share a coke with my husband of 40 years!! We have had to “weather many storms”and couldn’t be happier!!

  6. sharon l says

    Every day, after school, I would have a Coca Cola. It was the signal that “work” was done, other than homework, for the day and to relax. That was over 50 years ago. I’ll make a bet that there will be children who could use a Coca Cola in any form to feel “good times”. I see these cookies in my great granddaughter’s very near future. Thanks for such a good memory.

  7. Pam Holland says

    I would like to share a Coke with my friend Debbie. We both love to drink Coca Cola and she collects Coca Cola memorabilia. I’m a mini collector. Sometimes, when I find something for her I end up buying two. 😍

  8. Dick Russo says

    I greatly appreciate your loose of your mom since she was my wife and BEST friend! A truly GREAT lady. I would like to share a coke with Weesie, my first love in high school and my present wife!

  9. Candice says

    This is the part of Christmas I like, folks sharing their traditions with everyone. It seems to normalize the hectic season. I would share a coke with a lady from my very small rural area. It is her trademark. Never without her Coke.

  10. Julie V. says

    I would love to share a Coke with my sister Nancy. I have moved away from my hometown where all my family lives so that I can be closer to my grandchildren (Indiana to Florida). But I really miss my wonderful relationship with my sister and would love to share a Coke with her!

  11. Tracy Felix says

    Hi there! I was wondering if you knew about how many cookies this recipe yields…I have a cookie exchange on Saturday & was thinking of making these since they look DELISH!
    Also, I would like to #ShareACoke with my Mom, who lives in Colorado & I’m in California <3

  12. Emma Caponera says

    I would love to share a coke with my sister, brother, and my dad. We have not been able to see each other and spend time together in over 30 years. My sister has a very demanding job near Pensacola, Florida. My brother lives in New Hampshire also with a demanding job finding jobs for the disabled. I had to retire for serious medical reasons on 2015. My dad is 77 years old and has problems with his heart and prostrate. I have two grandchildren that they have never seen. If I coypd make any wish, it would be for the four of us and my grandchildren to sit down with a couple of cokes and spend the day in conversation. Even if I don’t win, thank you for giving me a reason to reflect on something that is truly my heart’s desire. God bless and Merry Christmas.

  13. Erin says

    I’d share a coke with my two crazy brothers because they love coke as much as I do. And these cookies might get shared at my cookie swap this Sunday! Was looking for a fun new recipe. Thanks!

  14. g smith says

    In the ingredient list you have 1/2 cup of butter (see note) listed but there is no note. Are additional directions needed?

  15. Laura says

    I would love to share a coca-cola and these yummy coca-cola cookies with my mom. She is in a nursing home and any celebrations are always good for her. She loves her treats and I love her.

  16. says

    This is wonderful! I make Coca Cola cake, but never thought of cookies. I bet they’re awsome. I’ll definitely be giving them a try. If I could share a coke with anyone, it would be my mom. However, she passed away 14 yrs ago. It still seems like yesterday and I understand how holidays are difficult for you because they are for me. Maybe we could share one together…Merry Christmas! Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  17. Christina D says

    These cookies look yummy!

    I’m a Coke gal. I hate when it’s not an option! I guess I would share it with my husband, I have to fight him for the good Mexican cokes when I buy them. Lol

  18. Alyce says

    I can’t wait to try this recipe. I would love to share a Coke with my good friend, Yvonn.
    I’ll be Pinning the recipe and sharing it with her and another friend.

  19. Holly says

    I would love to share a Coke with my 1st grade teacher partners! They work tirelessly for their students and could use a Coke for a pick-me-up day!

  20. Rachel says

    I love this recipe and cannot wait to try it out!! I would probably share a Coke with my dad ☺️ We both have a thing about appreciating a nice cold Coke (especially when it’s in a glass bottle). I call him Fasha, which I picked up when I was like 13 from an Austin powers movie 😂 When I first started calling him that he hated it, but after almost a decade of me calling him Fasha he has finally accepted it! I would love to be able to give him a Coke that said Fasha (and make him keep it FOREVER). 😂 This is a great giveaway, thanks for the opportunity and for this recipe!!

  21. says

    These cookies sound awesome! Can’t wait till tomorrow when I can bake some

    I would love to share a Coke with my family for Christmas!! But since two of my boys are in the military they won’t be home for Christmas.

    But thanks to this recipe I can share a Coke with them by sending them some of the cookies!!! Thank you so much!

  22. Linda N says

    When I am with my best friend/cousin, MJ, she and I like to share a Coke, eat popcorn, and watch movies. Sometimes we share a Coke and just talk. She’s a good listener and gives great advice. I am so fortunate to have MJ in my life. I can’t wait to give her this cookie recipe!

  23. Linda N says

    Do you think this could be modified into a bar cookie recipe? What’s your opinion? Thanks.
    PS I always add a Coke/Diet Coke and a pack of dry onion soup mix to my roast in the crockpot. It makes the roast tender and the taste is different.

    • says

      I do! I think you will just have to watch it for how long to cook, take it out when the edges just turn golden brown, spray the pan well, and let it cool completely before you cut into it.

  24. Molly says

    I always loved Coca Cola cake. Now I need to try the cookies. I would share a Coke with my mom. Stories like yours remind me that I need to spend as much time with her as possible while she’s still here.

  25. Kristen says

    I’d like to share a Coke with my friend Jenny who volunteers with kids at our local Ronald McDonald House….at the holidays and all year round.

  26. Charity says

    Stupid question, the butter says (see note) but I can’t find the note anywhere. I’d also love to #ShareACoke with my dad, one of the hardest working men I know and he’s always been a loyal Coke drinker!

  27. Jennifer Shafer says

    My boyfriend lives 1,500 miles away and LOVES Coke. And I would give anything to be able to share a Coke with him. I make him extravagant holiday boxes (and birthday boxes, and just-because boxes, too). One of the things I will be making him for his Christmas box are your Coca-Cola cookies. I might even have to see if I can find a Coca-Cola Santa tin to put them in. Thank you for the recipe! I can’t wait for him to try them!!

  28. Tamika says

    We may have to try these! I would love to share a Coke with my dad again, he passed on December 5th, four years ago.

  29. says

    I absolutely love reading blogs about making things. Especially, when it comes to realization and you are ready set go!!!!! Let’s do this!!! And then who knows what, who, where and how had to do with what your doing. Love it!!!, makes me feel like I’m a friend of yours and this is our story. Merry Christmas!!!

  30. Donna E. says

    Recipe looks terrific & I’m going to add to my list of cookies to bake this year. Now, for sharing that Coke. My wish would be for a very dear friend of mine to share a Coke with her husband. She lost him many years ago, when they were barely into their 30’s & she misses him every day. Bringing her that happiness would warm my heart.

    • says

      Oh Donna! That is so heartbreaking! So, I have a really dear friend who has been with me through my loss of my mom and Elliot. And she is the best kind of friend because she doesn’t try to make it better. She’s just there. Your friend is lucky to have you through her loss.

  31. Christina F. says

    I would like to share a coke with my friend, Nicole. I’ve known her since middle school and we’ve grown up together and she is such a big coca-cola addict. She’d be thrilled. And she’s someone I know that would honestly appreciate it. <3

  32. Autumn B. says

    I’d share a coke with my hubby. My grandma loved Coca-Cola and peanuts and we’d sit in her swing outside and enjoy that with her. She passed away in August and this will be my first Christmas without her. I think of her every time I open a Coca-Cola. I can’t wait to make these cookies and make some more memories with Coca-Cola!

  33. Cheryl says

    These cookies look so good!! My Christmas tree is decorated with mainly Coca Cola ornaments and our son leaves cookies and a bottle of Coke for Santa. These cookies would be perfect for Santa! So I would definitely share a Coke with Santa and my husband. 😉

  34. Ruth Apolito says

    I’m definitely going to make these cookies for my grandchildren.
    I’d love to share a coke with my mom and dad who are deceased. Some of my fondest memories were the special times growing up with my six siblings when my parents let us all have a coke! It had to be a picnic or a birthday party but I would give anything to have them with us again enjoying a coke and a hug!

  35. Peggy says

    These look delicious! I’m a coke lover and I’ve never met a cookie I didn’t like 😀
    I would love to share a coke with my daughter. She lives 400 miles away so I don’t get to see her as often as I would like. I’m so proud of her accomplishments and she’s so kind to everyone.

  36. Christie Hopkins says

    One of oMy family Christmas traditions is to hand out Christmas PJ’s on Christmas Eve and have a bottled Coke. Then we always share one with SANTA! We leave him a bottled Coke and cookies. I think this year I might have to make these to leave with his Coke! Thank you!
    Christie

  37. Shelley says

    After reading your blog, I think I’d like to share a coke with you. Would love to hear more about your mother. I’d also share one with my own mother. She’s my rock. I’m 44yrs old and she’s still looking after me.

  38. Pat says

    I would love to share a coke with my kids. They are high schooners and I could use some one on on time with them in order to keep in touch with what is going on in their lives

  39. Kelly M says

    I would share a coke with my BFF, who unfortunately lives two states away! Coke was one of our ‘things’ in high school, we even used to collect coke memorabilia! Love the idea for these cookies, I’m definitely going to give them a try!

  40. says

    I would love to share a Coke with my daddy. He is my best friend. We do lots of things together and he is my world. He makes all of my days happy when I am down.
