Roll out dough and put it in baking dish. Mix whole egg with a fork, brush the top of the dough with egg mixture and pierce it with a fork.
Fold the half-plums into the cinnamon sugar and cover dough with plums, cut side down. Lay almond slices over plums and sprinkle leftover cinnamon sugar on top.
Let pastry rest for one hour. Bake on 350 ᴼ for 40-45 minutes.
Slice when cooled and serve it with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
