To make snail pies. Take snails that have been well cooked & washed as appropriate, & cut them largely with a knife, & add nutmeg, pepper, butter, having been a quarter hour in the oven take four egg yolks beaten with a little Spanish wine, remove the pie from the oven, & cast the sauce in the pie, & let it again in the oven for an "Our Father", & no more.
