This biscuit is very labor intensive. I'm talking HARD labor! I used to make them to go with paper thin slices of country ham. You beat the dough with a rolling pin for up to half an hour. I used a rubberized slege hammer one time. I understand they can be made in a food processor.
Has anyone made them using both methods? I don't know if I have the stamina to do it the old way anymore. If the food processor works well, I'd try it. They're wonderful little biscuits and keep a very long time.
