Heat the drippings in a casserole. Remove from the heat, then add the oil, cinnamon, sugar, aniseed, wine, marc and lemon juice. Beat all these ingredients together and when they are thoroughly mixed, add enough flour, little by little, to form a reasonably firm dough. Knead well and then roll out to scone thickness and cut out shapes with a mold or shape buns with your hands. Place the buns on a greased and floured metal baking tray and bake in the oven for 45 minutes.
