  Lightly packed brown sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Cornstarch 4 Teaspoon
  Sliced fresh peaches 6 Cup (96 tbs)
  Whole cloves 3
  Cinnamon stick 3 Inch
  All purpose flour 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Granulated sugar 3 Tablespoon
  Baking powder 2 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Chilled butter 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Grated lemon peel 1 Teaspoon
  Milk 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Half and half 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)
  Brandy 2 Tablespoon

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.
