To cut the pastry, I love to use my Fantes Double-Blade Pastry Cutter! It’s super easy to use and it doesn’t scuff up your cutting board or surface as much as a knife might.

I always roll out my pastry and doughs on my Sur La Table Marble Pastry Board. It keeps dough chilled and it’s just plain gorgeous.

To make the avocado cream cheese, I use my Vitamix E310 Explorian Blender. It’s small enough for this and big enough for everyday use!
