1 tsp. vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large mixing bowl, beat butter on medium to high for 30 seconds. Gradually beat in 1 1/2 cups of the powdered sugar, the baking powder and salt. Beat in peppermint extract, vanilla and eggs. Beat in as much of the flour as you can; stir in remaining flour and candies.
