Add 4 tablespoons of melted butter or coconut oil, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Mix together and press firmly against the bottom of a pie pan carefully pressing against the edges to make a pie shell. Bake for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix together:

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 tsp ground cloves (don’t fret if you are missing one or two of the spices)
