  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Remove papery outer skin from garlic bulbs, but do not peel or separate the cloves. Cut off top of garlic bulbs, exposing individual cloves. Drizzle cut cloves with 2 tablespoons oil. Wrap in foil; place on a foil-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pan.
  2. Place tomatoes on same pan; sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Bake 40-45 minutes or until garlic cloves and tomatoes are soft. Unwrap garlic and cool 10 minutes.
  3. In a large saucepan, heat remaining oil over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until tender. Add minced garlic, thyme and tomatoes. Squeeze garlic from skins and add to tomato mixture. Add stock; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 20-25 minutes or until flavors are blended, stirring occasionally.
  4. Remove soup from heat; cool slightly. Process in batches in a blender until smooth; return to saucepan. Add cream and the remaining salt and pepper; heat through, stirring occasionally. Yield: 4 servings.
