1/2 (15-ounce) package refrigerated pie dough (such as Pillsbury)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
10 small plums, pitted and cut in half (about 2 1/2 pounds)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 425°.

Roll dough into a 10-inch circle on a lightly floured surface; set aside.

Combine brown sugar and the next 4 ingredients (brown sugar through plums). Combine the granulated sugar and lemon juice in a 10-inch cast iron skillet, and cook the mixture over medium-high heat just until it begins to turn golden.

Remove from heat; stir until completely golden. Add pecans and plum mixture. Place dough over plum mixture, tucking dough around plums.

Bake at 425° for 25 minutes or until bubbly. Immediately place a plate over pan. Carefully invert tart onto plate.
