This dessert that made its debut just a few years ago has taken the Turducken concept to a new (and sweeter) level.
The seasonal specialty that takes the turducken to a new (sweet) level was originally created for New York's David Burke Kitchen, which has since re-branded to Craveable Hospitality Group. The upscale restaurant developed the decadent dessert in 2015 and it became an instant sensation.
The piecaken consists of a pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and spice cake cut and stacked together, then finished with cinnamon frosting, oat crumble, and apple pie filling.
Zac Young, the executive pastry chef for Craveable Hospitality Group, dreamed up the recipe along with pastry chef Gian Martinez. They wanted to take “dessert turducken” to the next level.
Those that dare to take on this indulgent dish will have to get past the calorie count (one slice is over 1,200 calories), but it is worth it.
“Through the magic of butter, it all stays together,” Young says.

The piecaken has inspired many on social media to recreate the recipe with innovative twists. The special dessert can now be ordered for nationwide delivery on Goldbelly.
