This is a traditional Greek recipe. When I first heard of it, I was very reluctant to try something so strange. After tasting it, it turned into one of the family's favorite desserts. And it is very easy to make! Sprinkle with a little extra cinnamon before serving if you wish.

Directions

  1. Place the flour in a dry skillet over medium heat. Cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden. Set aside to cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. In a large bowl, stir together the watermelon, flour, honey, sugar, salt and cinnamon. Grease a 9 or 10 inch pie plate, and sprinkle half of the sesame seeds over the bottom. Pour the watermelon filling over the seeds, the filling should be about 1 inch thick. Sprinkle the remaining sesame seeds over the top.
  4. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before slicing. Refrigerate leftovers.

Not bad, a nice departure from the usual dessert. But, for the hoopla involved, I'd rather have plain ol' watermelon. I'm also not a huge fan of sesame seeds. Everyone who tried it said it was pretty good, but preferred the slices of fresh melon for dessert.
