1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract

In a small bowl combine the flour, the baking powder and the salt. Whisk to blend; set aside.
In an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment cream the butter and the sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes Add the egg and both extracts and beat for 1 minute.
Gradually add flour mixture to the butter mixture; beating until just combined. Fold in toffee and candy cane pieces.
