Tomato Basil Soup

Best Tomato Basil Soup!

This is a fantastic recipe for tomato basil soup.  I have made many different tomato basil soup recipes over the years.  I just never have been able get the right combination until now.  After tweeting recipes this is a great combination of ingredients.  Also this recipe is gluten free, dairy free, soy free and it is so good.  For a heartier meal you can add meatballs to the soup.

We have monthly get togethers with local innkeepers.  The dinners rotate and each innkeeper hosts a dinner during the year.  This September we met at our bed and breakfast for dinner.  We served this tomato basil soup recipe.  Along with the soup we served homemade pimiento sandwiches and chicken salad croissants.  I am happy to say this recipe passed the innkeeper’s taste test!  When everyone asks for the recipe you know it is a hit!  Try this tomato basil soup recipe which will add vibrant fall colors to your table!

Iced Cranberry Pecan Cookies

Iced Cranberry Pecan Cookies

Brenham House Fall Cookies

These Iced Cranberry Pecan Cookies are one of my most favorite cookies.  I just love the Fall and I can’t help myself, I just have to bake them for our guests at Brenham House!  Sometimes I dust them with Powdered sugar, but my favorite is to use lemons icing on them!  Yes, I said, “lemon”.

1 1/4 c. sugar, 2 sticks of softened butter, 3 egg yolks, 1 tsp. vanilla, 2 1/2 c. flour, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. cream of tarter, 1c. cranberries, 1c. pecans chopped finely

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixer cream together the sugar, butter, egg yolks, and vanilla.  In a bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and cream of tarter.  Slowly add to the wet ingredients.  Stir in the cranberries and pecans.  Scoop out on a pan with parchment paper and do not flatten.  Bake for about 10 minutes until lightly brown on the edges.  Cool and dust with powdered sugar or ice with your favorite icing.  Makes about 4 dozen.
