you could mix cake flour and AP flour if you have those on hand...that would create the best result without pastry flour. otherwise, you will definitely have a tougher texture (but the flavor should be mostly the same)

You should be able to substitute all-purpose flour for the whole wheat pastry flour 1:1. If the dough still feels sticky after you mix the wet and dry ingredients together, add up to 1/4 cup more a-p flour.
