Whole Foods sells whole wheat pastry flour. You can probably find it in other gourmet cooking/ speciality stores. There's a gourmet cheese store by me that carries it.

whole foods tends to carry it, and their 365 brand was cheaper than king arthur the last time i checked [and worked just as well]. i think i have seen it at publix as well, the price tends to run higher than whole food though.

I read a while back that if you replace about 2 tablespoons of flour per cup with corn starch and then mix it all up in a blender or food processor (to get that finer consistency) the resulting flour will work like pastry flour. I have used this with white whole wheat flour. I don't care for traditional whole wheat and I am pretty sure white whole wheat pastry flour doesn't exist, so that is what I use. The results are usually very tasty.

You can also order whole wheat pastry flour online from places like King Arthur Flour. Their products are very good. Happy baking!

whole wheat flour, will give you a slightly more dense texture to the end product; than the whole wheat pastry flour. It can work well for some items. For baked items that you desire a more tender crumb, then use 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 white flour.

I have several recipes that call for whole wheat PASTRY flour. I have looked in many stores and can't find it. What would happen if I used regular whole wheat, is there a way to substitute one for the other ? Has anybody else run into this problem ? I live in central Florida.

Thanks for any and all inputs.
