   Place one snail in each hole of escargot dish.  Generously cover with
   butter mixture.  Place 1 sheet of puff pastry dough over each escargot
   dish.  Trim dough and seal around edge of dish.  Beat egg with water and
   use to brush dough.  Chill until ready to bake, at least 20 minutes.

   20 to 30 minutes.  Remaining butter mixture can be refrigerated as long as
   2 weeks and used when garlic butter is needed.
