Sometimes a pie needs more than a plain crust!
You can make this with any pie crust dough. I use a whole spelt and coconut oil version first posted on here: 84thand3rd.com/whole-spelt-pie-crust/

Feel free to vary the spices to suit your filling. I've listed cinnamon and cloves here but ginger, cardamom and allspice would be lovely too.

- You could, if you were really inspired, assemble this flat on a piece of baking (parchment) paper and use it as a top crust for a fruit pie!
