Graham Cracker Cones
Makes 8

2 large egg whites
7 tbsp. granulated sugar
Pinch salt
½ cup graham cracker crumbs
3 tbsp. rice flour
¼ tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. butter, melted

1. In a large bowl, whip egg whites until slightly frothy. Add sugar and salt and stir to incorporate.

2. Add half of the graham cracker crumbs and half of the rice flour and mix to incorporate. Slowly whisk in butter.

3. Whisk in the rest of the crumbs and rice flour. Stir in cinnamon and allow batter to rest for 10 minutes.

4. Using a 6 inch circle template, spread 1½ tbsp. of the batter evenly onto a sheet pan lined with parchment. Bake the cookies at 350 degrees until golden brown, about 6 minutes.

5. Quickly remove the cookies and roll on a cone mold (you can use few pieces of paper rolled into a rigid cone). If the cookies become too rigid, place back in the oven for 15 seconds to make them pliable.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
