2teaspoonsfreshly grated lemon zest

Turn your grill on high to preheat. This recipe can be done in an oven as well set to 350 degrees. Lightly butter 9 X 9 inch Pyrex glass dish or Pie pan that is made of ceramics that can withstand very high heat.
Preparing the Mixed Berry Filling: Place berries into a prepared baking dish. Squeeze half a lemon over the berries. In a small bowl, combine sugar and lemon zest. Add the flour and whisk until thoroughly combined. Sprinkle mixture evenly over berries in a prepared baking dish and toss gently. Make sure the sugar and flour mixture over the berries evenly. Set aside.
Prepare the Biscuit Topping: In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt until well combined. Using a pastry whisk, cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles a coarse meal with small pea-sized pieces of butter. In a small bowl, whisk vanilla into the beaten egg using a fork. With the pastry whisk, toss beaten egg and vanilla into flour mixture until moistened and the dough starts to hold together. Continue to toss and blend gently with fingertips until well combined. It should crumbly but if you overwork the dough it's ok.
Assemble the Cobbler: Sprinkle biscuit crumble topping evenly over fruit filling. If the dough is too soft simply flatten it in your hands and break it into pieces across your berries. Sprinkle biscuit topping with sugar and cinnamon.
Bake the Cobbler: Your grill should be perfectly heated now, lower to a medium flame to bake. Bake in the preheated grill until topping is golden brown and filling is cooked through and bubbly, about 40 to 45 minutes. If your cooking in the oven, prevent over-browning of topping by covering with a sheet of aluminum foil after 25 minutes of baking. Remove foil and carefully transfer to wire rack to cool.
Serve the Cobbler: Serve cobbler warm a la mode or with fresh whipped cream.
