Brought to us by Zac Young -- acclaimed pastry chef and (if you ask me) humanitarian -- this version of the stunning creation will trick you into thinking that all's well in the world.

This recipe is basically a combination of a pumpkin pie, a pecan pie, and an apple upside-down cake. It also comes with a cinnamon buttercream frosting on top.
