If using a 9x9-inch pan, drop a spoonful of batter on top of berries in 8 mounds, spacing them equally apart. If using individual ramekins, roll dough on floured surface or wax paper (Image 1), then use a cookie cutter to cut into desired shape (Image 2-4). Then place dough on top of berries in each ramekin.

Brush tops of batter with melted butter and dust with coarse sugar (Image 1, for pan). Place cobbler in the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until filling is bubbling and tops of cobbler are golden brown.
