Hi do you have to use pastry flour or can regular whole wheat flour be used?

    Hi there - you most certainly can use regular whole wheat flour! The best part about these recipes is that you can make them your own and use ingredients best for you :) You will have to let me know how the whole wheat flour works for you!
