No books, but there's a recipe in Ouverture de Cuisine (France, 1604)
for Snail Pie.
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.
