I've never heard of a cooked watermelon pie before! Tell me about it.

This was the first time I made it, so I added the recipe as it was made. I thought the filling was a little dry. So, I would soak the dried cranberries in some sort of liquid the next time. Flavor-wise it reminds me of apple pie because of the spice combination and the watermelon is similar in texture, as well. (By the way, I am enjoying the class. I have always wanted to be able to make a decent pie crust - I think they are getting better!) 3 cups chopped watermelon rind (peel and fruit removed) 1-1/3 cups (6 ounces) dried cranberries, chopped 3/4 cup chopped walnuts 1/2 cup sugar 1 teaspoons cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon allspice 1/4 teaspoon ground clove 1/4 teaspoon mace 1/8 teaspoon black pepper 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon salt Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches) Place watermelon rind in a saucepan and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until the rind is tender and translucent. Remove from the heat; drain. Place in a large bowl; add the cranberries and walnuts. Combine sugar, spices, flour and salt; add to rind mixture and stir well. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom pastry; trim the pastry even with edge. Add filling. Roll out remaining pastry; make a lattice crust. Seal edges. Cover edges loosely with foil. Bake at 425 until crust is done.
