    We really loved this dish...the only reason for the 4 stars is that the cream cuddled in step 15...I would suggest pouring all the cream in the dish during step 10...I cut the recipe in half using just 3 breast...we normally don't have a full bird...we use the legs and thighs for soup and stews...anyway...this was really yummy...I served it with potato pancakes...the apples went very well with the potatoes...I didn't have Drambuie so I used 1 1/2 tbs of brandy mixed with 1 1/2 tsp of honey with about 1/8 tsp of sage...mixed it together and took a taste...if Drambuie taste like this...I need to locate a bottle of that stuff...thanks for posting the recipe...I'm always on the look out for a good Pheasant recipe...=)
