Bring the cream, butter, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 3 cups water to a simmer in a medium pot. While whisking, slowly pour in the grits. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the grits are tender and creamy, about 20 minutes. Serve topped with a pat of butter.
