Beaten Biscuits
60 mins (prep 30, cooking 30)
5 ingredients
18 servings
First of all, these are NOT traditional biscuits; they're more like a puffy cracker. The traditional way to beat biscuits was on a tree stump using a hatchet or flat iron. Older homemakers sometimes still have the wooden blocks called "biscuit blocks" used to beat the biscuits. Nowadays, a food processor makes quick work of the dough. From the Southern chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947
