Ingredients:  
3 c. canned low-salt chicken broth
1 c. whipping cream
1-15 oz. can pumpkin
3 T. (packed) dark brown sugar

Directions:
Bring chicken broth and whipping cream to boil in heavy medium pot. Whisk in canned pumpkin, brown sugar, cumin, chili powder, coriander, and nutmeg. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until soup thickens slightly and flavors blend, about 15 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Soup can be prepared a day ahead and I think it tastes better when made ahead so the flavors can blend!) Cool. Cover and refrigerate. Re-heat over medium-low heat, whisking occasionally. Ladle soup into bowls. Garnish each with cheddar cheese and cilantro. Serves 4.
