Confusion over types of Flour - Cookie recipe question

d
DKS1 | | Jan 5, 2010 12:04 PM

I am eager to make a batch of chocolate chip cookies whose recipe calls for 8 1/2 oz. cake flour and 8 1/2 oz. bread flour.

However, I only have all-purpose and pastry flour at home. Can I use this combination instead, replacing the cake flour with pastry flour and the bread flour with AP? Or should I use only all-purpose? Also, do I need to change the amounts of either/any?

Help!!!

Thanks in advance - I'm DYING to make this recipe but don't want to mess it up, as the ingredients (chocolate, mainly) are expensive.
