Pecan pie belongs to the family of “transparent” pies based on brown sugar, molasses, and corn or maple syrup. These are either Southern or Pennsylvania Dutch, some harking back to traditional English chess tarts. My favorite is the Jefferson Davis pie, but nothing beats a really creamy pecan pie, like this one.
Put the eggs, sugar, corn syrup, butter, and salt in a bowl and beat for 5 minutes. Add the toffee, pecans, and chocolate chips and mix thoroughly.
Fill the pie shell and
Serve with the ice cream.
