    c = cookie.SimpleCookie()

It's in http.cookie for Python 3.x.
So import is from http import cookies

For all about HTTP use Requests

>>> import requests
>>> url = 'http://httpbin.org/cookies'
>>> cookies = dict(cookies='are good to eat')
>>> r = requests.get(url, cookies=cookies)
>>> print(r.text)
  "cookies": {
    "cookies": "are good to eat"


I also have tried import use
from http import cookies
and it genrates the same error
ImportError: cannot import name 'cookie

It's part of standar library,so it should work.
Here a run in Python 3.4.

>>> from http import cookies
>>> a_cooike = cookies.SimpleCookie()
>>> a_cooike['Base'] = 'cream'
>>> print(a_cooike)
Set-Cookie: Base=cream

The default placement for python 3.5 is terrible,what are developers thinking about?
I know the answer and it security relatet,but i don't like it.

Follow this,the you get better placement C:\Python35-32
Make sure under installation that you mark for Path and pip.
Test pip and upgrade pip.
Here a run and use virtualenv,so you see how pip work from clean setup.

λ activate

(test) C:\test\Scripts
λ python -m pip install --upgrade pip
Requirement already up-to-date: pip in c:\test\lib\site-packages

(test) C:\test\Scripts
λ pip -V
pip 8.1.2 from c:\test\lib\site-packages (python 3.4)

λ pip install requests

Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import requests

#And also test cookies
>>> from http import cookies
