Steve has lots of silly sayings, and he persists in using them in spite of objections and groans from the family. One of them is to call people who he thinks are especially smart (male or female): "sharp cookies".
Anyone ever heard of that term?

Well, yesterday, Ollie and I were busily playing cars and making roads in the dirt, and he must have been especially pleased with me because he said, "Nana Honey, you are as smart as a cookie!"

Makes about as much sense as the original. (And I'll take the compliment!)

Hi Darlene,
I enjoyed the Ollieism and had to look up the word, too.
Smart Cookie is a common phrase here in Canada, at least I have heard it many times, but I think it isn't used by younger people, probably considered old-fashioned ;)
Happy Easter,
Willow

Yes, Willow, I used to hear it as a kid growing up.
