Preheat oven to 350° for glass dish or 375° for baking pan. Mix sliced peaches, sugar, cinnamon and flour in a bowl and set aside. Mix flour, sugar, salt and baking powder together. Cut in shortening with a fork. Beat eggs, milk and vanilla together in a separate bowl. Add egg mixture to flour mixture. Stir until mixed. Cover bottom of a 9x13 glass dish or baking pan with the peach mixture. Drop large tablespoons of dough in rows on peaches. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until top is golden brown. Let cool.
