Relish autumn’s color and flavors right in your bowl with this creamy, golden soup from Spearville, Kansas field editor Pat Habiger. Just blend the ingredients and chill overnight. “For a treat, serve in hollowed-out small pumpkins,” suggests Pat.

"I was very excited to make this recipe because I really like pumpkin and apples. But unfortunately, I will not be making this one again. My family of four, 2 adults and 2 small children, did not care for this at all. I think I will try to make something with the leftovers though, maybe a quick bread or some muffins."

"Been making this for several years without the onion. I just thought it was better without it. winter squash works well in place of pumpkin."

"This was pretty good. I like it, but I thought it was kind of thick. But I guess that's how it's supposed to be. It's a great autumn food."

"Good, but I added a dollop of sour cream and some parmesan cheese when I served it to make it great!"
