Do you have the nutrition data for the all-purpose flour, stating the weight in grams per cup? They actually are very close. Bob's Red Mill pastry flour, which I suspect is as close to "standard" as any, has 120 grams per cup. Pillsbury All-Purpose has 125 grams per cup. If you can weigh your ingredients, then adjust accordingly. (I don't know what amount is called for, so I can't do the math precisely.) If you are measuring by volume, reduce the all-purpose flour by two teaspoons per cup of whole wheat pastry flour called for. And if you are using an A-P flour with a density other than 125 g / cup, then please let me know and I'll walk you the calculation. ;o)
