Pumpkin Soup

When leaves turn golden and the temperature drops, that's when we start craving hot bowls of soup. Especially thick, rich, golden pumpkin soup with its sweet and savory fall flavor. I love pumpkin and our maple pumpkin butter is delicious can’t wait to make this weekend!
*Pumpkin Soup*
2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil or unsalted butter
1 medium onion, chopped
2 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch dice
2 cups chicken broth
1 jar Maple Pumpkin Butter (Pick up at Bonnes Amies Kitchen)
1 1/2 cups half and half or light cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Heat olive oil or butter in a saucepan. Add onions and cook until translucent.
Add potatoes and chicken broth to saucepan; cover and bring to a boil.
When potatoes are fork tender, puree potato-onion mixture with cooking liquid in food processor or blender.
Return mixture to saucepan. Stir in contents of one jar Maple Pumpkin Butter, and half and half. Reheat gently. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and toasted pumpkin seeds.
