    BothFex's Note:

    A recipe adapted from a famous, anal retentive, control freak, home making guru (she irons her sheets for goodness sake) and as such, is overly complicated yet... yields delicious results. A different kind of cookie that offers a wonderful finish to a Mexican meal/dinner party.

      I betcha the "form into a disk" part is for quicker and more uniform chilling, as compared to a ball, for example.

      I was about to post this recipe and found it already on Zaar. I found it on Martha Stewart's show and make them quite frequently, particularly in the summer. They are extremely refreshing and melt in your mouth. My recipe makes about 3 dozen.
