Pastry Cutter, an Essential Tool

Typical pastry cutter.

I have come to realize that many of my readers don't have a pastry cutter and some don't even know what a pastry cutter is. This is a very cheap hand tool that can be found in just about any store that carries kitchen gadgets. I consider this tool essential for many of my low-carb dishes such as cheesecake crusts, crumbly topics, and biscuits. If you don't own one, you can use a food processor on pulse mode. But when using a food processor, it is very easy to over-do it. And, a pastry cutter is much easier to clean.

Since I don't use my pastry cutter for floury things much any more, I use it most often to slice up strawberries!
