Stir together first 7 ingredients in a large saucepan. Cook over medium heat 15 minutes or until peaches are tender and liquid is reduced. Cool; process in a blender until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Cover and chill.
Stir in half-and-half. Top each serving with a dollop of Raspberry Cream, and garnish, if desired.
I've made this recipe 3 times now. My family enjoys the sweetness and it's surprisingly light considering that it is a cream soup.
The first two times I used fresh ripe peaches which was yummy but messy to prepare. I used frozen peeled peaches for this last batch to save time and the flavor was still refreshing for a summer day. My husband and daughter fight over who gets the last ladleful.
