Hi Wellington

The task doent want you to redirect the response to a view called index, remove that and it should work. Also its treehouse and not Treehouse.

from flask import Flask, make_response

app = Flask(__name__)


@app.route('/save')
def save():
    response = make_response()
    response.set_cookie('treehouse', "student") 
    return response

hope that helps.

you are much appreciated Andreas
