To remove a cookie, you need to set the expiration date to a past date.  Sometimes I've found just doing this on the server isn't enough, and I've had to write Javascript to delete the cookie on their browser (using the same technique)

HttpCookieCollection cookieCols = new HttpCookieCollection();
cookieCols = Request.Cookies;
Request.Cookies.Remove("PASS");
Request.Cookies.Remove("UID");
