Pit the plums, splitting them into halves or thirds. Grease the pan and spread the dough. Liberally spread plums over the dough, meat side up. If the plums are sour (as opposed to just tart), sprinkle them lightly with sugar.
To make the optional Streusel topping, cream the butter, add flour, sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the plums. Bake for 30-45 minutes in the middle rack at 375 degrees F. Be careful not to let the bottom burn!
Serve liberally topped with freshly-made whipping cream.
