1. Peel, seed, and cut squash into 1-inch cubes (should yield about 4 large cups). Core and cut pears into 1-inch cubes (roughly 2 cups). Coarsely chop onion.

2. In a stock pot, add olive oil and stir in squash, pears, and onion. Cook for roughly 15 minutes over medium heat until onions are soft and transparent.

3. Add in cider and bring to a boil. Add in broth, lower heat, and let simmer for 30 minutes until squash and pears are tender.

4. In shifts, add soup mixture to a blender or food processor, and puree. Once all is pureed, add back to pot and season with salt and pepper.

5. Turn heat to medium-low and reduce soup until about 1/2. Consistency should be not too thin, and not too thick-- depending on your taste. Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan, add half-and-half. Slice open vanilla bean and scoop out seeds into half and half, add in vanilla exterior bean pods and place over medium heat.

6. Steam half-and-half (DO NOT BOIL), remove from heat, take out pods, and whisk to break up any chunks.

7. Once butternut squash mixture is at desired consistency and texture, stir in half-and-half/vanilla mixture and serve with chopped chives for garnish.
