    Pastry flour can mean the difference between delicious light flaky layers and heavier, more dense pastry that can be tough. The problem is, specialty flours can be hard to find, and rather expensive. Here's a simple, inexpensive recipe to make your own pastry flour.

    I'll bet you're wondering what the difference is between the different flours, the answer, my friend is the amount of protein. To put it into perspective, here's the approximate amount of protein for each flour:

    Bread Flour: 14 - 16%
    All-Purpose (AP) Flour: 10 - 12%
    Pastry Flour: 9%
    Cake Flour: 7-8%

    Of course, these amounts vary
    by brand, as well as by region or country! If you want to make the perfect pastry here's the do it yourself ratio to make your own pastry flour:

    Don't pay for expensive flours when you can create your own inexpensive Pastry Flour for Perfect Light Flaky Pastry!

    For 1 cup of Pastry Flour You'll Need:
    3/8 cup of All Purpose Flour
    5/8 cup of Cake Flour

    for 4 cups of flour
    1 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
    2 1/2 cups of Cake Flour

    Alas, what if you don't happen to have Cake flour? You can take 1 cup of all purpose flour, remove 1 tablespoon of the flour and add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. This mixture will result in a slightly tougher flour.
