"I didn't rate this much yet because I haven't actually tried it yet. I have a question. Could White Rice Flour be used in place of the Brown Rice Flour. Please answer soon, as I want to try this for Christmas as crust for a Caramel Pecan Cheese cake pie, the recipe for which is also found on TOH. I am going to substitute Pecans for the Walnuts in this recipe."
