For handmade topping:
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. In a measuring cup, add egg to whipping cream and stir until egg is mixed in (Image 1). Add vanilla. Stir wet ingredients into flour mixture (Image 2) and stir until thoroughly combined (Image 3).

For quick topping:
Mix all quick topping ingredients in a bowl until moistened.

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.
