  • Add broth and bring to a boil.
  • Lower heat and cook for 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Stir in spices, brown sugar, and pumpkin.
  • Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.

  • Working in small batches, Transfer a few cups of the soup to a smaller pot.
  • Bring the smaller batch to a boil.
  • Add 3 or 4 gingersnaps and whisk till dissolved into soup.
  • pour this batch into a blender and puree until smooth(about 1 minute)
  • Pour into a container or other soup pot until all batches are complete.
  • Repeat and Continue working in small batches until done.
  • Transfer back into soup pot and keep warm until ready to serve.
  • Serve with croutons or additional crumbled cooked bacon.
  • This is a thick soup if you do not want it so thick use less ginger snaps! Enjoy!

    I can't say enough about this soup! I took left overs to school today and had my students taste test it as well as some of the faculty. Everyone loved it and wanted more! I found this to be a good judge since they are picky kids! They love to test any of my recipes though! haha
