Cookies are delicious. But this kind of cookie sounds dangerous.

Sharp Cookie.

Anna, you look worried. What's up?

Today is my beekeeping test. I have to pass if I want to be a professional beekeeper.

Don't worry about it. You're a sharp cookie. I'm sure you'll do fine!

Thanks. I just hope I don't have to touch any real bees.

"Sharp cookie" describes someone who is intelligent and a quick learner.

In this case, "sharp" means "smart."

In fact, "smart cookie" is also a common expression in American English.

The two phrases mean the same thing.
