In my house we are trying to go organic however, using organic -unbleached flour has left me with a very tough crust. Is it possible to use organic flours and yield a tender crust?

SARAHSGARDEN:
  Good afternoon. Sarah, KAF sells unbleached “CAKE FLOUR” It is much softer than the flour you are employing. You can try that

Sarah, I do not know whether or not it is ORGANIC. I would also check with them if they sell organic pastry flour as well.

I will list their TEL # for you. You can ask for a catalog if you like to.

Good luck & enjoy the rest of the day….... 1 855 371 BAKE   this is the bakers hotline. They have the answer for you.

You might try mixing your own organic pastry flour by diluting your strong organic unbleached flour with org cornstrarch.  Hard to say how much as I don’t know the protein content of your flour (or which flour you are using), but you start with something like 20% by weight.

I also use 20% by weight. And it gives me good results.
