Plum tart, not Hermé´s way

This time I´ve decided to try a recipe from the Great Monsieur Hermé. This recipe is from his book, Larousse of Desserts, a really big book, with basic and more elaborate recipes. I chose this recipe because it seemed light, simple, and I wanted to eat plums.

This recipe I chose to try, looked really good and not so difficult, but it didn´t happen. The original recipe calls to put to plums halves on the dough and bake for 30 minutes. But after that half hour it seemed that the plums would not have passed through the oven, so I decided to change everything, remove the plums from dough and beke them on the stove top. 
It might have worked with some plums less firm. Maybe, who knows.Of course, the recipe is not like the one on the book, but the fixed version. I hope you like it!
