Tomato Basil Soup

This is my absolute favorite tomato soup for 2 reasons
1st- Easy Peasy!!! 30 minutes 
2nd- bestest yummiest tomato soup

2 big cans crushed tomatoes
6 cups tomato juice
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
3/4 stick...(it is 3/8 cup) butter
15 fresh basil leaves
salt and pepper to taste

Here is the hard part.... 
dump the tomatoes and juice in pot and heat for 30 minutes.
Add cream, butter, and basil leaves.
Blend with hand blender.
Salt and pepper to taste-TRY BEFORE YOU PUT ANYTHING IN!!!
I like it au natural!!!
