I also think -- at a certain point, I don't care how much time is wasted time. At a certain point I think tell her teacher "I'm cutting her off at x time."
I also think it might be a strategy to tell her "I am setting the timer for 5 minutes, if you can show a good effort for 5 minutes, I will let it be done." Or -- give a long break instead of letting it be done, if that is what you want to do. Or -- if you see it's going to be reduced work, maybe pick that she starts with the 3rd problem or something like that, so that she gets to the last problem if it is one where she could need more practice.
I would just do this. It's not right for it to take so long, it doesn't matter if your daughter is dawdling, it is still taking that time, and it is too much time, imo.
Edit: My younger daughter is getting into an age where she has homework sometimes, and I am so mad sometimes at how EASY it is for her. She truly just sits and does it, no big deal. It shouldn't be excessively more difficult, for any reason, than that, for any kid. I did a lot for my older son as far as not having him doing things or scribing, and now ----- I even wish I had done more with seeing how easy it is for my daughter.
It's more complicated if more practice is needed for a child to master the material, but it doesn't sound like that is the case here at all. If practice is not needed to master the material, it is just ------ there is no reason.
Your daughter might honestly need less work to master the material, too. She sounds like she is picking things up easily to me (my impression lol). If she honestly needs less practice, then less practice can be what is appropriate for her! The same way another child would need an amount appropriate for him or her, that might be more or less.
