Maple sugar gives this pumpkin soup a hearty sweetness that’s perfect for winter. If you can’t find maple sugar, you can substitute regular syrup. Slideshow: More Warming Soups

How to Make It

Step 1    

Heat the butter in a large Dutch oven or stockpot. Sauté the onion over medium-high heat until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and continue to cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Step 2    

Carefully stir in the pumpkin, stock, maple sugar, salt and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, then turn the heat to medium and simmer for 20-25 minutes, until the soup coats the back of a spoon. Off the heat, stir in the cream. Puree using an immersion or stand blender until very smooth.

Step 3    

Serve the soup in bowls and garnish with maple sugar.
