Preheat oven to hot (400°F.). Grease baking sheets.
Mix the cornmeal, sugar, salt, drippings and onion. Add the boiling water and stir until smooth. Add the egg and beat well.
Drop the batter by scant teaspoons onto baking sheets, keeping the mounds of batter about one inch apart. Flatten with a spoon. Bake for about fifteen minutes, until crisp and brown around the edges.
