A classic Fall-Winter Pumpkin Soup with creamy and nutty flavors. This soup is a perfect prelude to a Thanksgiving, Christmas or other Holiday Dinner. Canned pumpkin works well...your dinner guests will never guess that the pumpkin isn't fresh!

I "always" love how you include either chilled plates and forks and, in this case, warm soup bowls. Such an overlooked essential. Soup was perfection - truly - but I added cream to my pot making this soup, your choice, - (might have been an oversight since you added cream in directions) ... A crowd pleaser - Hmmmmmmmm.
