Substitute for sweet rice flour?

I have a recipe for gluten-free chocolate chip cookies that calls for rice flour, sweet rice flour and cornstarch. I can not find sweet rice flour at this late date. What is it for and what could I substitute?

The recipe calls for 1 1/4 cups rice flour, 1/2 cup sweet rice flour and 1/4 cup cornstarch. I was able to get rice flour last night but all the stores I called today (Fresh and Easy, Trader Joes and Whole Foods) do not have sweet rice flour in stock.
I work until 5 pm today so those were the closest stores that I thought might carry it and are open after 5.
I've never done gluten-free baking before and some searching says the sweet rice flour gives moistness. Is there anything I could substitute? Bonus points for something easy to get like applesauce.
