Creamy Butternut Squash Soup

I've always been wary about squash soup but after making this recipe...I'll never make that mistake again! This butternut squash soup is amazing. The perfect balance of flavors and the perfect creamy texture. Mm!

What you need:

2 tbsp butter
1 cup chopped onions
1 butternut squash (peeled and cubed)
2 cups water
1/2 tsp dried marjoram
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne
4 vegetable bouillon cubes
1 package 8 oz cream cheese

What you need to do:

1. Melt butter over medium heat in a skillet. Stir in onions until tender.
2. In a crock-pot, add in onions and all the other ingredients except for the cream cheese.
3. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
4. Using a blender or food processor, blend the soup mixture until smooth. Return the soup to the crock-pot and stir in the cream cheese. Cover and cook on low for about 30 more minutes. Stir with whisk until smooth.
