Substitute for All Purpose Flour

  • 2

Planning on making some cookies today, and discovered my flour (for the second time in six months) had flour beetles -- will be abandoning my ceramic flour holder for a better metal one.

In the meantime, I have whole wheat flour, cake flour, pastry flour, and bread flour. What's my best best for substitutions? Just making a shortbread cookie.

  1. I'd go with the pastry flour for shortbreads, or indeed, most cookies, if AP isn't available. Cake flour would just be too soft.

    1. definitely the pastry flour.
