Cook's Notes:

I buy my rice flour at the Asian market - much cheaper.

It works really great to make up a bunch of these mixes at the same time. I put all of the dry ingredients in a zip lock freezer bag with all the wet ingredients written on the bag with a sharpie marker and the baking temp and time. These can just be stored in the cupboard. I even hauled several of these "cookie mixes" with me on our recent trip to Branson. We had fresh baked cookies several times while we were there. The relatives didn't even know they were eating "weird food.”
