In a small mixing bowl stir together sugar and nutmeg. Set aside. In another small mixing bowl beat cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed till fluffy. Add 3 tablespoons of the sugar-nutmeg mixture. Beat till well combined. Set aside.

Prepare pastry as directed. On a lightly floured surface roll dough into an 18x12-inch rectangle. Cut into six 6-inch squares. For each dumpling, spread 2 teaspoons of the cream cheese mixture on the cut side of a plum half. Top with another plum half. Place in the center of a dough square. Moisten dough edges with water. Fold corners to center and pinch to seal edges.

Place the dumplings in a shallow baking pan. Brush with some of the half-and-half or light cream and sprinkle with the remaining sugar-nutmeg mixture. Bake dumplings in a preheated 375 degrees F oven about 30 minutes, or till plums are tender and pastry is golden. Serve warm with half-and-half or light cream.
