This is a wonderful book for people who love to bake and entertain.
Shala Kerrigan
The recipes are laid out well and easy to read, but the photos are really unique, with chalk drawings of plates and bowls -- I love them!

I have been waiting for months for this book to be released and I have to say it was well worth the wait. The recipes are easy to follow and amazing on a plate. The photography is gorgeous and mouth watering. The tips provided by the author are all those answers to the questions you might have about making crackers. I have only made a couple of the recipes so far but I have to say that they turned out even better than I hoped and I'm not an experienced cracker maker. I served the Caesar Sables at a dinner party and not one cracker was left. They had a texture resembling shortbread and a savory, salty flavor that just melded together in your mouth. There are also recipes for sweet treats like Skinny Mint Chocolate Grahams and especially intriguing to me, Rosemary Graham Crackers with S'mores Accoutrements. I can hardly wait to try these. I'm pretty sure I'll be making every recipe in the book before long. I highly recommend this book.

Crackers and Dips- More Than 50 Handmade Snacks is one of those specialty books that will appeal to a lot of home bakers. Homemade crackers give you complete control over the flavors and ingredients and taste wonderful.

The author starts by introducing herself, and explaining "snack tooth" which is like a sweet tooth but for savory more than sweet. Then she explains a lot of the tips to make cracker making a lot easier. How to roll out the dough perfectly, and how you can also do pressed crackers or use a pasta machine. She explains how to get a perfectly crisp cracker, how to cut and pierce them, and other tricks for perfect crackers. It also covers some of the most used ingredients and why she chooses them.

Then into the recipes. The focus is on great ingredients and flavors. The first chapter has a lot of traditional favorites like cheddar crackers, goldfish shaped mini-crackers and soda crackers. She uses yeast frequently as leavening agent instead of baking powder, and gourmet touches like alder-smoked salt make even a soda cracker very special.

The next chapter is inspired by recipes from the around the world. Japanese rice crackers, my favorite rye crisps, Norwegian crackers made with oatmeal and other savories. These crackers, like the ones in the other chapters also come with dip, spread and topping suggestions.

Healthful Snacks and Wheat-free crackers has several gluten-free crackers. Nut lovers will also love this chapter with things like Brown Butter-Hazelnut Crackers (my new favorite!).

Quick and Crunchy uses mostly pre-made items to create crackers with flavor and snap.

I'm so excited to start cooking out of this book! It has all the little crackers and tasty snacks that people usually buy from the grocery store, like cheddar cheese crackers and graham crackers, and lots of yummy dips too. I like how there are a lot of gluten-free and flour-free options. I have to give extra big props to the design of this book, too. The recipes are laid out well and easy to read, but the photos are really unique, with chalk drawings of plates and bowls -- I love them!

Read the review in the newspaper and had to order this little gem. Crackers and Dip is well-written, beautifully illustrated and contains great recipes. It even gives you the recipe for home-made animal crackers! A treasure for the home cook. I will probably not buy another off-the-shelf cracker again. Crunch, crunch, crunch!

I've been flipping through a lot of books on crackers lately. I am a part of a dinner group and always pride myself on doing absolutely everything from scratch. But a few months ago, it was kindly pointed out to me that my "home made" crackers were always coming out of a box. I'd made the dinner rolls, yes. The pasta and pie, yes. But, to be honest, I hadn't even thought to make the crackers. So I dove into some pretty extensive research and now this is my new baby. Also, I just plain love the book. It's beautiful, very high quality, serious and playful, and I feel good about having it in my collection. One pleasantly unexpected thing about it is the writing itself. Occasionally, it has a chatty, anecdotal sense of humor with a lot of wisdom and not an ounce of self righteousness. The photos, too, have a really cool integrity and style I haven't come across before (blending photography and sketching.) I like the author's spirit and conscientiousness, I like her recipes, and I like the smug feeling I've been getting when I walk past the cracker aisle.

Not all the recipes are from scratch some people might like that some people might not. Most of the recipes are from scratch though. It's a great book for party planning. Whether it's a formal party or informal (like a football game or DIY bridal shower) It's a great reference book to have!

Cons: Be prepared to buy/use a lot of ingredients for one recipe... and also a lot of recipes use uncommon ingredients mirin, furikake, semolina flour, chickpea flour, orange blossom water, sel gris

I've been experimenting with crackers. Now I'm starting with the dips. it's a nice book, well illustrated, and with very easy instructions. Friends don't believe I made the crackers and want to know where to buy them. They love the different flavors.
