The smooth fall flavors will warm your soul as the temperatures drop. This recipe is super easy for anyone to do ANY night of the week!

  1. 1 large butternut squash (You can buy them pre-cubed to save a LOT of time, or whole to save a LOT of money :)
  2. 2 Macintosh apples, peeled and cubed
  3. 1 medium yellow onion
  4. 1/4 c maple syrup
  5. 1/2 c heavy cream
  6. 1/4 c brown sugar
  7. Salt and pepper to taste
  8. 2 cups chicken broth

  2. Saute the apples and onions in butter over medium heat until soft. Stir in brown sugar and remove from heat.
  3. Add squash, apple mixture and remaining ingredients to a soup pan. Cook over medium heat for 30 minutes, smashing with a fork and stirring occasionally.
