Cheddar-Apple Soup

"This recipe comes from Betty Crocker's "Why It Works" cookbook that I checked out from the library. Great little book! As always, I will substitute fat free half and half and possibly even delete the whipping cream because I feel that I get similar results while saving myself calories and fat."

    I really liked this soup. We added seasoning salt and extra cinnamon. Next time I will use a Granny Smith to see how that turns out. I used fat free half and half with excellent results and next time I will leave out the cream as suggested.
