Heat oven to 400. Mix ½ cup sugar, the cornstarch and cinnamon in a 2 quart saucepan. Stir in the peaches and lemon juice. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir for one minute. Pour into an ungreased 2 quart casserole. Keep hot in the oven.
Cut shortening into flour, 1 tb. sugar, the baking powder and salt until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in milk. Drop dough by 6 spoonfuls onto hot peach mixture.
