Sweet and savory, pretty and indulgent. I use canned pumpkin to make it easier, but regular pumpkin would make it that much better.

On a fall trip to a museum with a couple of friends, pumpkin apple soup was on café menu. It was really good, so I looked for one to make at home with frozen pumpkin puree left over from Thanksgiving. This is the recipe I found and it is fabulous. So many layers of flavor. Can't believe more people haven't reviewed it, or maybe people just don't think of pumpkin soup. I did not add the cream at the end, but sprinkled a little crumbled feta in. Delicious.

Quite possibly THE BEST soup I've ever tasted! We like to eat this with crusty bread for dipping.
