Tomato Cognac Soup

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Dee_73

I had this soup this past weekend at a wedding up in Maine and I thought I was in heaven. The chef told me the basic ingredients and I went on a hunt. I found this recipe and made it tonight. The exact same thing I had. Originally it came from a place in New Hampshire :)

Yum!! This soup was wonderful! Simple and creamy. I think it would also be good to puree only 1/2 of the soup mixture to give it a little more texture. Thanks Dania!
