A great winter soup! Serve with a pan of hot biscuits or onion scones.

Top Review by Jennifer

Great soup for a cold and rainy fall day. I made the soup as directed using 3 cups of sharp cheddar cheese. The thing I liked most about this recipe is that it makes a nicely textured soup. In the past, I've found most cheese soup recipes to be too runny. I used 2 medium size carrots and celery stalks and will use one or two more of each the next time. Thanks, Aroostook!
