Poe Dameron Pie

Presenting a dessert so good it can destroy Starkiller Base with the power of deliciousness.

If you were going to serve up a treat for a Resistance pilot going off to battle, a chocolate wasaka berry pie would be it. Silky and sweet, the rich chocolate pie is filled with the surprise of whole berries and topped off with a homemade whipped cream. No access to Kashyyyk wasaka berries? Not to worry, raspberries work just as well.

The pie reflects Poe Dameron’s pilot helmet. As a commander in the Resistance, Poe’s helmet is unique in its dark color, with red and gray detailing. Here the old Rebel Alliance symbol is given new life with a little bit of sanding sugar.
