just made this afternoon, although the temp outside is 109. I just had a bowl and it is wonderful. The only thing I changed was to fry a couple of slices of bacon chopped up very fine instead of using butter. Everything else is pretty much followed the recipe, and it was outstanding. Made this for a friend who's got some dental issues, because it's soft and I figured if the corn was too chewy I'd throw in my hand blender so she could mush it up a little more if she needed to. Great

Creamy and delicious! I used canned no-salt added corn (didn't have fresh), and it turned out great. I did have to use corn starch instead of flour to thicken it, but that's a minor change. I'll be making this again! Thanks!

This soup is so simple and so delicious. It tasted even better warmed up the next day. I made a second batch to share with coworkers - everyone loved it and asked for the recipe.
