I am wondering if there is a rule of thumb about substituting whole wheat flour for unbleached a-p flour in cookie recipes.

For example, if I wanted to do it with Merrill's yummy cookie recipe from earlier this week. I had a cookie with WW flour recently and it was yum so I am interested in trying it out.

When I want to make whole grain cookies, I substitute equal amounts of King Arthur white whole wheat flour. It's ground finer than most regular whole wheat flour, so results will be similar to AP flour when making cookies.

I also do a straight switch if using white whole wheat or whole wheat pastry flour. For great, great whole grain baking, if you haven't already, check out Kim Boyce's Good to the Grain.
