Butternut Squash Soup with Cinnamon

1. Chop onions and set aside. Then peel and cube the butternut squash and set aside.

2. Warm a small non-stick pan on medium heat. Lightly coat in butter flavored cooking spray and saute the onion until tender, about 5 minutes.

3. Put the onion and squash into a 5 or 6 quart slow cooker.

4. Pour the broth, sugar, ginger and garlic in the slow cooker and stir together. Add the cinnamon stick.

5. Cover and cook on low until squash is tender, 6-8 hours.

6. Discard the cinnamon stick.

7. Put a couple cups of the cooked squash along with a quarter of the cream cheese in a blender. Process until smooth and pour into a bowl. Continue processing batches of the squash and cream cheese together until it's all blended. Stir it all together.

8. Divide into 8 servings and if you'd like, top with crystallized ginger and black pepper.
