Are you starting to get in the mood for soups yet? I know here in the north it’s cold already (we’ve already had frost) and I’ve been in the kitchen making hearty meals that remind me of fall. Today I want to share with you my Autumn Squash Soup recipe. My favorite is from Panera and this is as close as I can come to getting it to taste like theirs. I do believe the secret ingredients are Honeycrisp apples and Maple syrup so I’ve added them both to this recipe.
I always make a double batch and freeze one. I figure If I’m going to go to all the trouble of making it from scratch I’m going to make it worth my while. If you use a pie pumpkin like I do don’t forget to save the seeds and roast them to add to the soup as a garnish.
This is the time of year I purchase several pie pumpkins, roast them, scoop out their flesh and freeze it for this soup recipe and my Pumpkin Pancake recipe of course you can use the canned version but if you have the ability to make fresh yourself nothing tastes as good. Just click on the text under the photos for a downloadable copy of the recipe.

And this is a delicious Breadstick to go with either recipe.
