Combine egg and half-and-half; add all at once, stirring just enough to moisten. Spread dough in greased 8 x 1 1/2-inch round pan, building up edges slightly. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes. Remove from pan; cool on rack 5 minutes. Split in 2 layers; lift top off carefully. Butter bottom layer. Spoon berries and cream between layers and over top. Serve warm.
