Heat up 1 tablespoon of escargot butter in a non-stick frying pan. When the butter has melted, put in the escargot and sweat for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the Pernod. Carefully return to the heat and tip the pan towards the flame to flambe. When the flames subside, add the remaining escargot butter. Let simmer 5 minutes
Warm the puff pastries in the oven.
