Delicious! I'd even try it with butternut squash since pumpkins aren't widely available here. - 22 Nov 2010
Dear people- read the reviews. My first taste I almost launched the pot down the sink. Then as it simmered I read more reviews. Unsure how to rate it since it's not that good as written but what are recipes anyway but good ideas to add to, right?!?! Ok agree with me later. This soup is EXCELLENT when you add a palmful of brown sugar. AND add extra pumpkin pie spices. AND a sprinkle or 2 of cayenne pepper. I used half-n-half and I ran outta onions, but did mince up some garlic. I really love how it turned out. Taste as you go and for the love of G-d do NOT over-salt it. - 16 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Great soup on a cold day! I made it lowfat by using Pam instead of butter, and using skim milk thickened with corn starch instead of whipping cream. Also, instead of croutons, I just floated some sliced scallions on the top to make it pretty. Thanks for the recipe! - 15 Jan 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
