I have been making this soup for many years now. It is like liquid gold and everyone's favorite for Thanksgiving.

I made the recipe for the first time tonight. I added some red pepper flakes to give a little heat. I liked the way it tasted and its consistency so I did not run it through the food processor. I am planning to serve the soup as an appetizer on Thanksgiving,

I altered the recipe by adding a dash of cayenne pepper and about a quarter teaspoon of chili powder. I left out the cinnamon entirely. The soup was a bit thin, so I thickened it by adding two tablespoons of flour mixed with a quarter cup of water

Incredibly easy and nice flavor. I ran out through the Vitamix and it's smooth as silk. It's a tad thin for my liking so I think next time I make it (very soon) I will double the pumpkin as suggested earlier. I was afraid of the cinnamon and sugar but their flavor is complimentary and just right, not too strong. This is a yum!
