cream puffs and whipping cream

Saturday was a baking/cooking day.  Getting things ready for Phil to take back to school and meals ready for the week for us. 
Decided cream puffs would be a nice treat.  Trying to bring a little summer in the house.
If you haven't tried making them they are ever so easy.  I think the most difficult thing just might be stirring the eggs in the dough.
When I am ready to whip the cream and add the powder sugar I always think of my Grandma Klein.
When we would go to her house for holidays she would pull this beater out from the refrigerator, pour the cream in and I would turn the crank for a long time.  I would keep pulling the lid to see if it would be thick yet.  Again, I cranked that handle a long time.  I have this memory sitting on my kitchen counter.
For my birthday last year I got this amazing blender/food processor from my parents.
There is several bases, blades, covers and the top is a motor.  A couple of presses of the button and you things chopped, diced, shredded etc.  I decided how about whipping the cream in this.  Less than five minutes I had thick cream for the puffs.  A-MAZ-ING !!!!!!
All I could think of is what would Grandma think of this ??
The boys told me these tasted awesome !!
