Apple-Cheddar Soup

I served this soup with Panini's and Caesar salad. It was a hit! I found this recipe in the October 2007 issue of BHG.

1/2 c. finely chopped onion
1 T. butter
2 medium baking potatoes, peeled and diced
2 c. apple cider
1 t. fresh thyme, crushed
1/2 t. salt
dash cayenne pepper
1 medium cooking apple, peeled and coarsely chopped
1/2 c. milk
2 T. flour
1 c. Sharp cheddar, shredded
Fresh apple slices
Green peppercorns

In large saucepan cook onion in hot butter over medium heat until tender. Stir in potatoes, cider, thyme, salt and cayenne pepper. Bring to boil. Reduce heat. Simmer covered for 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 melted. Garnish with fresh apple slices and peppercorns.
