  • Melt, in a glass bowl in microwave, shortening and semi-sweet chocolate chips on medium (50 %) for 1 to 2 minutes. Add in sugar and then eggs one at a time, stirring well after each addition. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  • Mix in sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Add next 4 ingredients; mix well to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate from 1 ½ hours to 8 hours.
  • Sift, in a shallow bowl, icing sugar. Between palms of hand, roll pieces of chilled dough to form 1 ¼” (3 cm) balls. Drop balls into icing sugar and toss lightly until well coated. Place on parchment paper lined baking sheets and flatten very slightly.
  • Repeat with remaining dough and remaining icing sugar, spacing about 1 ½” (4 cm) apart on baking sheet.
  • Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).
  • Bake in preheated oven for 11 to 13 minutes or until just beginning to feel firm when pressed in centre. Let cool on baking sheet on wire racks for 5 minutes. Transfer crackles to wire racks to cool completely.
