I wasn't impressed. Solid recipe for sure, but not a stand out. Won' t be making again when there are other better recipes.
Creamy Squash and Apple Soup
"This is a way to get my daughter, Clara, to eat squash, and we all love it. It's so adaptable; I just sprinkle the squash with cheese or croutons or maybe even a drizzle of pureed cranberries." -Molly Swetnam-Burland, Brunswick, ME

- 4 teaspoons butter, divided
- 2 cups vertically sliced onion
- 1 1/2 cups sliced peeled Granny Smith apple
