A have a recipe for a Apple-Cheddar Soup from Better Homes and Gardens that I make every year. It is really yummy. I actually add a bit more thyme and a bit more cheese, but that is me.

Apple- Cheddar Soup
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 Tbsp. butter
2 medium baking potatoes, peeled and diced
2 cups apple cider
1 tsp. snipped fresh thyme or 1/2 tsp. dried thyme, crushed
1/2 tsp. salt
Dash cayenne pepper
1 medium cooking apple, peeled, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
4 oz. sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded (1 cup)

In large saucepan cook onion in hot butter over medium heat until tender. Stir in potatoes, cider, thyme, salt, and cayenne pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 15 minutes. Add chopped apple; simmer, covered, 5 minutes or until potatoes are tender. In small bowl combine milk and flour; stir into soup. Cook and stir until bubbly. Slowly add cheese, whisking until cheese is melted.
