I chose this recipe because it looked easy, and I like pumpkin. I chopped up an apple with the onions, and made the soup a little sweeter by adding about 1/2 cup of apple cider and a tablespoon of molasses. It was very creamy, and my friend thought it had much more butter than it did, even though I used lowfat milk. To serve, I plopped on a small scoop of sour cream.
