Oh, my! A gluten-free cutout cookie recipe! Yippee! I'm so glad you also included the flour blend info, because using only the rice flour can produce less-than-fluffy results. :) Thanks.

I just made this recipe; it's chilling now and we're going to have a rolling out/decorating party with the kids tonight. :) Your GF cookie exchange sounds great; I clicked on it and you're actually only about an hour away! Thanks for the recipe!
