Chubby Tates
Makes 36

2¼ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
12 tbsp. (1½ sticks) salted butter, at room temperature
½ cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp. light corn syrup
1 large egg plus 1 large egg yolk, at room temperature
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 cups (12 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips

1. Position the oven racks in the top third and center of the oven and preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line 2 large rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.

3. In a large bowl, beat the brown sugar, butter, granulated sugar and corn syrup with an electric mixer set on high speed until combined, about 1 minute. Beat in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla.

4. With the mixer on low speed, mix in the flour mixture until just combined. Mix in the chocolate chips.

5. Using 2 tablespoons per cookie, drop the dough about 3 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets. (The mounds of dough can be frozen on the baking sheets until hard, then transferred to a zip-tight plastic bag and frozen for up to 1 month. Bake without thawing.)

6. Bake, rotating the positions of the sheets from top to bottom and front to back halfway through baking, until the cookies are lightly browned on the edges, about 18 minutes. (If using frozen cookies, bake for about 20 minutes.)

7. Let cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and let cool completely. Repeat with the remaining dough on cool baking sheets.

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.
