The pros: With Trader Joe’s Meyer Lemon Cookie Thins you can have 9 cookies per serving, delicate lemon flavor with a hint of sweetness
The cons: It’s lemon, but doesn’t taste overwhelmingly like Meyer lemon, it tastes just like regular lemons.
The verdict: For $3.99 you are getting about 80 cookies. Best of all the calorie count on these is more than reasonable, most likely due to the fact that if these were any thinner they would need to be called wafers. These are delicate little cookies that you may keep reaching for. I found them strangely addictive and kept eating these. As much as I liked them, I turned them into sandwich cookies with a homemade filling. Completely optional but ups the lemon flavor on these.

Would I buy this again? For me this is a yes. Do I think these can be improved? Of course! Here is where the Betty part of the blog kicks in. I love Oreos or most sandwich cookies for that matter. So if you want to up the lemon level on this add a frosted filling and make it a sandwich cookie:
Lemon Frosting Recipe
6 ounces of unsalted butter room at temperature
2 1/2 cups of sifted powdered sugar
1 tsp lemon extract
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
Mix all ingredients in a mixer. You are looking for a stiff icing as you don’t want anything too moist impacting these cookies.
I shall call them Betty Betty’s. Why? Because Joe Joe’s are prepackaged.
