This creamy, velvety soup brings together the classic combination of brie and fresh apples. The cheese creates a wonderful savory and sharp flavor to soup while bringing a very nice creamy texture. Apples and spice lend an interesting depth of flavor. This will become everyone's favorite comfort soup. A delightful starter to any meal, the addition of bread makes this soup into a meal itself.

  11. Add salt to your taste.

Use Caution When Blending Hot Ingredients

Steam expands quickly in a blender, and can cause ingredients to splatter everywhere or cause burns. To prevent this, fill the blender only one-third of the way up, vent the top, and cover with a folded kitchen towel while blending.
