At the 30 minute mark cut wash and cut the apples into 1/8ths. Place a stick of butter in a sauce pan on medium, once the butter is melted add the apples and stir. then add the brown sugar, stir, then add about half of the cinnamon. Stir and let simmer about 5 minutes, over cooking will make the apples mushy.

Cook the rice with about ten minutes to go on the pheasant.

Once the pheasant is done, move to a serving platter and place in warm oven (covered), Apples can also be placed in the oven when finished.

Combine egg yokes and cream mix then place in the pheasant pan, continue to stir, do not let the eggs harden once combined place in a separate bowl to serve. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
