Emily’s Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes 3 trays

110g (about 1¼ cups) steel-cut oats
80g (about 1 cup) flax
50g (⅔ cup) flour
2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
130g (about ¾ cup) light brown sugar
40g (about 3 tbsp.) granulated sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 large egg yolk, at room temperature
3 (generous) tbsp. vanilla extract (or a splash of bourbon)
99g (about 1 cup plus 2 tbsp.) quick-cooking oats
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
¾ tsp. salt
350g (1¾ cups) semisweet chocolate chips (half shaved, half in chunks)
Chopped walnuts, to taste

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line several cookie sheets with parchment paper, or lightly grease with non-stick vegetable spray.

2. Using a spice grinder, grind the steel-cut oats until they achieve a flour-like consistency. Repeat with the flaxseeds, then mix both ground oats and ground flaxseeds with the flour.

3. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add the egg, egg yolk and vanilla, beating well to incorporate.

4. In a large bowl, combine the flour mixture with the quick-cooking oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to the butter mixture and mix until fully combined.

5. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Dollop dough onto cookie sheets and bake for 6 minutes. Turn cookie sheet around and cook until golden, about 6-8 additional minutes.

6. Let cookies cool on the tray for a few minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.

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.
