I have a cookie recipe that calls for whole wheat flour, can I use all purpose flour instead?

For cookies it shouldn't be a problem, but what type of cookie are you making? It does affect the flavor.
You can. What kind of recipe is it? It will affect the flavor (less nutty) and they will have a lighter texture. They will not be as "healthy" but should be fine.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
