Apple Cheddar Soup

Dianne Hocut


This light, yet cheesy, soup has the perfect flavor combinations. Apples, Cider, and Cheese! Found it in a Better Homes and Garden Soups & Stews magazine and we enjoy it tremendously BUT, I have found it is much smoother and creamier if I add vegetable broth as a thinner. Di
