Pour the tomatoes into a large saucepan along with four cups of tomato juice. And let this simmer for about 30 minutes. Add the basil to the tomato mixture and pour into a blender and blend until smooth.
Return the soup to the pan and add one stick of unsalted butter, one cup of whipping cream, and about a fourth of a teaspoon of cracked pepper and salt to taste. Now just heat the soup through, allowing the butter to melt. Stir frequently and it will be ready in a few minutes.
