Whole Wheat Pastry Flour vs. Regular Pastry Flour

basegers

Can anyone tell me if I can substitute whole wheat pastry flour for regular pastry flour in a cookie recipe? If so what is the conversion factor.
Thank you for your help.

The whole wheat pastry flour is also known as Graham flour and while used in cookies and pie crust is also used to make heartier cakes and Graham crackers. I'm sure you could use it in the cookie recipe you have, as long as the recipe calls for pastry flour. You should be able to substitute it 1:1, but may need to add a bit more liquid because of the whole wheat.

Are you trying to add whole wheat to a recipe you have used in the past? Or is the whole wheat pastry flour all you have instead of pastry flour? If you could give us a little more nformation and post the recipe, maybe we could give you a better answer.

Thank you Cindy. I am making peanut butter cookies. The recipe calls for pastry flour. I do not have any regular pastry flour. I do have 3 lbs. of whole wheat pastry flour that I bought in order to use 1/4 of a cup. I would love to use up the whole wheat pastry flour and not have to run out in search of the white stuff.

You're welcome. Let us know how wonderfully they turn out. Remember, if the dough feels a little dry, you might need to add some liquid to reach the right consistency.
