For Biscuit Topping, in a medium mixing bowl stir together flour, the 1 Tbsp brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and 1/4 tsp salt. Cut in the 1/4 cup butter till the mixture is crumbly. Make a well in the center. Add milk all at once. Using a fork, stir just till dough clings together. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough gently for 10 to 12 strokes. Roll or pat dough into a 12×8-inch rectangle. Combine walnuts, the 3 Tbsp brown sugar, and cinnamon; brush dough with the 1 Tbsp melted butter and sprinkle with nut mixture. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting from one of the short sides. Seal edge. With a sharp knife, cut into eight 1-inch-thick slices.

Set aside. For filling, in a large saucepan stir together the 2/3 cup brown sugar, cornstarch and lemon peel. Add peaches and 2/3 cup water. Cook and stir till bubbly. Transfer to a 12×7 1/2×2-inch baking dish. Arrange biscuit slices, cut side down, on HOT filling. Bake, in a 400F oven about 25 minutes or till biscuit slices are golden. Serve warm with Sour Cream Topping or ice cream.
