Use normal whole wheat flour in place of pastry flour?

Switch the measurement for the ap and whole wheat flour so AP is two cups and whole wheat is 1 1/4 cups.  If it seems a little dry, add a tablespoon of milk to the dough at a time until it's all incorporated.  Should work.

Just note that whole wheat flour is not as refined as the pastry flour would be and soaks up a good amount of moisture.  I often substitute up to half of my AP flour in a recipe with whole wheat flour and usually have to add a smidge more moisture.

Good luck.  :)

I do not believe 100% whole wheat flour will give you the result you are after, in  my experience, the all-purpose flour is ESSENTIAL! You might get away with not using whole wheat pastry flour though, IF you use the all-purpose called for.

To "lighten up" regular white flour some bakers will add cornstarch. I don't know if that would work with WW flour but it might be worth a try. Like Pete says, using 100% WW flour will give you a dense product.

terestrife,

  You will not be able to use straight WW flour. Please don't waste you money and time.
