Any dried mushroom will work well for cheese soup. It is better to take cream with a high fat content, it will turn out to be more creamy and tender. If you want a thicker soup, then increase the amount of cheese or use another method. Add a little flour to the cold cream before adding to the soup and stir until smooth. It will not give away flour, but it will turn out to be thicker and velvety.
