I've not used Dancer2::Session::Cookie, but I know the following works for the
YAML session engine. Therefore, it might be worth trying the generic
cookie_duration parameter instead:

To set a cookie:
cookie MYCOOKIE => 'value', expires => '+2h', domain => $cookie_domain;
(I guess the domain is optional - I've just copied that from existing code)
To get a cookie:
my $code = cookie 'MYCOOKIE'
