Cookie in Slim 3

How would I manage cookies wit Slim 3? Currently my setup is:

$c['cookie'] = function ($c) {
  return new \Slim\Http\Cookies;

Then somewhere (like middleware) I just need to access like:

$this->cookie->get($key) // For getting cookie
$this->cookie->set($key, $value) // For setting cookie

However, the only problem is how could I delete the cookie? In \Slim\Http\Cookies I can't find any method related to 'delete' as 'deleteCookie()' in Slim 2. Thanks!

    How that object in app container can modify your response? You don't show it

    You can do it in the old way:

    // Set expires in past
    $app->cookie->set('test', [
         'expires' => date('Y-m-d H:i:s', time() - 36000)

    // Modify response with cookies
    $response = $response->withHeader('Set-Cookie', $app->cookie->toHeaders());

    Your \Slim\Http\Cookies object won't contain any of the cookie data from the request. You must pass it the cookie parameters from the request. Use this to define the service:

    $container['cookie'] = function($c){
        $request = $c->get('request');
        return new \Slim\Http\Cookies($request->getCookieParams());

    I'm not really sure why this service isn't defined automatically by Slim. Hope this helps.
