1. Combine brown sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan. Stir in peaches, cloves, and cinnamon. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is clear and comes to boiling. Cover and continue to cook over low heat 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove spices. Cover and keep warm.
2. Blend flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Cut in butter until particles are fine. Add lemon peel and milk; mix lightly with a fork until just combined. Bring fruit mixture to boiling and pour into a 2-quart shallow baking dish. Drop tablespoons of batter onto fruit mixture, spacing evenly.
3. Bake at 400°F about 30 minutes. To serve, pour half-and-half (mixed with brandy, if desired) over individual servings of warm cobbler.
