This is scrumptious!!
It needs to be made a day ahead of time and refrigerated. I made it the same day it was to be eaten, and it was good then. But, after being in the fridge overnight, it was sooooo much better.

~~ U may try changing the recipe a bit on the 1 1/2 cup water for ~~ 3/4 cup heavy cream and 3/4 cup water. And Toasting the pecans
