Here’s how inside the Merzci Pasalubong factory in Bacolod City.

First, lots and lots of butter are mixed with flour using a spiral mixer.

It is then flattened several times into thin sheets with a dough sheeter

This is the freezer where the dough spends an hour before it returns to the sheeter again for the final fold before it is baked.

It will then be cut into small pieces and baked in an oven.

After the baking process, the custard filling will be placed between the dough sheets.

Sugar glaze is added on the top for the final touch.
