    Nothing taste better than a nice Butternut Squash Bisque on a cold evening. Cook time includes pre- cooking the squash.

      A great bisque to enjoy in fall. I enjoyed all the autumn-ish flavors in this soup. The texture was thick and smooth. I'm sure that this would be just as great with acorn squash puree. Thanx for posting!

      I'm so sorry that this one just didn't work for me. I found that something gave an unpleasant bite or sourness; perhaps I'm just too used to butternut squash soups that are very sweet! It's also possible that the dry sherry I used had turned -- but I don't think so. I'm glad I tried this, but don't think I'll make it again ... I'm off to search for a recipe that doesn't use wine, and see if that helps. Thanks for posting this!

      I was so proud of this dish. It tasted like it could have come from a restaurant kitchen! Next time, I will bake the squash and apples for a full hour, as I had a hard time scooping out the squash from the peels. I will omit the hot pepper flakes, since I found it to be a little on the hot side for me. I have already shared the recipe with a friend! Thanks for sharing with us!
