Radiobomb is correct -- the "AP" stands for "all purpose" -- that's 90% of the flour sold in most typical supermarkets. This is opposed to "cake flour" or bread flour" which have differing amounts of gluten and therefore behave slightly differently when used differently.

You might use any of the gluten-free all-purpose flours such as those from Williams-Sonoma (Cup4Cup), King Arthur or Glutino. Or, you can make your own all-purpose mix using brown rice flour, millet flour, sorghum flour and Xanthan gum.

You will not be happy if you substitute any rice flour one-for-one for wheat flour in a recipe designed for wheat flour. You will need one of the substitutes (can be pricey) or will need to make your own. There are several different "recipes" for wheat flour substitutes (most will feature rice flour as one of the ingredients), all with varying success. Personally, I like Connie Sarros' recipe: 2-1/2 cups rice flour; 1 cup potato starch flour (NOT potato flour), 1 cup tapioca flour, 1/4 cup cornstarch, 1/4 cup garbanzo bean flour, 2 Tablespoons xanthan gum. Mix all well. Keep unused portion in the fridge or freezer.
