This roast pumpkin soup is made from freshly roasted pumpkins.  We use our jack o lanterns and sometimes buy extra pumpkins this time of the year.  We then roasted them to make amazing roasted pumpkin puree.  And if you would like to roast your pumpkins HERE are all the easy instructions.    This creamy pumpkin soup recipe is loaded with layers of amazing flavors.

This is a classic pumpkin soup but with a spicy flare with the addition of Louisiana Hot Sauce.   But you can control the amount of spiciness or heat by adding more or less of the hot sauce.   And this soup also contains a couple of tablespoons of bourbon which could be optional but it really adds a unique flavor that we love.
