Five stars for what an amazing soup this can be, maybe four stars as written. I agree with other reviewers that this recipe needs a good 1/4 c. or so of brown sugar, and as usual I doubled the spices. I also added a bit of cayenne, which makes the soup both sweet and spicy, a lovely combination. My mother in law wasn't too enthused about the idea of this soup, but when she tasted it, she asked for three copies of the recipe - for her and her sisters! The homemade croutons couldn't be simpler and are a special touch. A few notes: I used veg broth because I'm vegetarian, and I think it imparted a sort of sourness that was easily remedied with the brown sugar. I also used half-and-half rather than whipping cream to "lighten up" the dish (if you call half-and-half light!!) and it was still plenty rich and creamy. This soup was a very nice addition to our Thanksgiving dinner, and I've already been enlisted to make it at next year's feast!
