Adjust rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 375°F.
FOR THE FILLING: Stir sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and salt together in large bowl. Add berries and mix gently with rubber spatula until evenly coated; add lemon zest and juice and mix to combine. Transfer berry mixture to 9-inch glass pie pan, place pie pan on rimmed baking sheet, and bake until filling is hot and bubbling around edges, about 25 minutes.
FOR THE BISCUIT TOPPING: Whisk flour, cornmeal, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in large bowl to combine. Whisk melted butter, buttermilk, and vanilla in small bowl. Mix remaining 2 teaspoons sugar and cinnamon in second small bowl and set aside. One minute before berries come out of the oven, add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, stir with rubber spatula until just combined and no dry pockets remain.
TO ASSEMBLE AND BAKE COBBLER: Remove berries from oven; increase oven temperature to 425°F Pinch off 8 equal-sized pieces of biscuit dough and place on hot berry filling, spacing them at least 1/2 -inch apart (they should not touch). Sprinkle each mound of dough with cinnamon sugar. Bake until filling is bubbling and biscuits are golden brown on top and cooked through, 15-18 minutes. Cool cobbler on wire rack 20 minutes and serve.
