Layers of so satisfying flavor! The savory and sweet are a perfect balance. I used my immersion blender a little longer for an extra silky texture. I didn't have a sprig of thyme on hand, so I used just a pinch of dried thyme, and knowing how the Italians combine butternut squash and sage, another mere pinch of dried sage. Be sure to roast the squash first and to use only genuine pure maple syrup. This is now my go-to recipe for Butternut Squash Soup!

This was wonderful flavored soup. Usually cook butternut in casserole but this was outstandingly delicious.

This was delicious. I added the apple and cut back a little on the maple syrup. Will definitely make this again.

Was great! Did half chicken and half beef stock for a bit more flavor. Takes time to cook, but prepping could make this recipe go quicker.

Turned out amazing ! The family loved it. Delicious recipe, reminds me of the autumn squash soup at Panera!

Turned out better I expected (with my amateur cooking skills). I made this without the apples or cinnamon for fear it would turn into a dessert-like soup. I also didn't have any fresh sprigs of thyme so I just used the dried thyme I had in my spice rack. I'll definitely make this again!

Easy and excellent! I didn’t have maple syrup so I made a simple syrup with brown sugar and water as a substitute.
Alexandra 6 Apr

Very good I used less Maple syrup as it was too sweet but definitely will make again.

Made with Acorn Squash cause that’s what I had in the house...was delish! Did add the grated apple too

Awesome. I over blended and substituted the base cream, but in the end it so it was delicious— way better then Panera’s soup. I added more seasoning and substituted. I highly recommend adding the cinnamon and nutmeg at the end when adding the cream, and maple syrup; I cheated a bit and bought already cut/cubed butternut squash Added 1/2 cup water and added more onions 3-4grinds from sea salt mill 4-5 shakes of pepper Used DRY rosemary about 1/4 teaspoon and left it in soup. Added 1/4 nutmeg Added 1/4 cinnamon Used half and half instead of end cream Also substituted real maple for Mrs. Butterworth’s (don’t gag it worked!) I might have over blended in the end but it was luxuriously smooth and delicious. This is a keeper. Ah’MaZzing!

Great recipe, although I tweaked it as follows: Instead of the heavy cream, I added silken tofu to "cream" it out as I was blending in my Vitamix. Also, instead of the onion, I used a large leek. There is nothing like leeks to give a great taste to any of your soups, but especially the cream soups. The grated apple is a nice addition. Also, you might want to roast a couple of carrots to puree with the butternut squash, and consider the addition of a couple of good pinches of turmeric. I did, however, omit the maple syrup. It tasted too much like a dessert for my taste, with that addition of maple syrup. Prefer it savory. The apple adds enough sweetness.

I made this for a Friendsgiving event, and it was a huge hit! It was easy to make with these few ingredients, and a general review of amazing. As toppings, I included some old Brioche toasted with butter to add texture, and bacon bits on the side for those non-vegetarians who were looking for the added savory. Overall, I would absolutely make this again!
Rita Kasparian 20 Nov 2017
It’s good but a little too sweet for our taste
Mary R. 13 Nov 2017
This soup is awesome!!
Diana H. 22 Oct 2017
Loved it, my hubby even loved it. Cut the maple syrup in half, and was perfect amount of sweetness.
Martha Hopper 21 Oct 2017
Used shallots for the onion, and added minced garlic. Also used a small grated macintosh apple. Did not add cream, cinnamon or thyme. Delicious.
George MacDonald 19 Oct 2017
I actually excluded the maple syrup and cream, it was delicious enough without it!!
Quynh Chau 11 Oct 2017
Delicious. Although, just realizing that it’s not the greatest idea for a weeknight dinner 😅
Deuce 8 Oct 2017
Great, simple recipe enjoyed by all at our Thanksgiving dinner. I tweaked it with more ground pepper to give it a nice kick.
Sarah N. 30 Sep 2017
Would use less maple syrup next time - very sweet.
Pam W. 29 Jan 2017
Turned out well, but made some minor changes: I used a hand mixer to beat the squash before putting it in the pot, I like a bit more cinnamon, & switched out syrup for 2 T brown sugar. Easy recipe!
Sanchelle C. 25 Dec 2016
Absolutely loved it!! I have made this three times and it has become my go to. Made it for my parents for Christmas! They loved it!
Jhana S. 20 Dec 2016
This recipe is great, and very easy to recreate. I added about 2 tablespoons of salt to the pot and about 1 tbsp of pepper to complete the dish
