Great dessert we enjoyed tonight. Only change was I had a small amount of leftover pecans, so I mixed them up with some walnuts. This is definately a strawberry delight, as I am ready for a second serving as I speak. The cooling and cooking times were right on the dot. Made as a bonus tag for participating in Julys I reconmmend.
