- 6 tbsp butter
- 1 lb crab meat
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 2 cups milk
- 1 tbsp cooking sherry
- Salt and pepper to taste
Melt the butter in a Dutch oven or heavy saucepan. Add the crab meat, whipping cream and milk. Bring to a boil over medium high heat then reduce to low heat. Simmer for 20 minutes.
Remove from heat and add sherry, salt and pepper. Serve with lemon wedges and saltine crackers.
- Fresh lemon juice and saltine crackers are the PERFECT complement to this soup.
- If you have it on hand, add a sprinkling of old bay seasoning!
- To slim down the recipe, half the amount of butter used and replace half of the cream with milk.
