2 h. 30 min.
Preheat the oven to 300ºF. Grease two baking trays with butter and cover each one with flour. Shake off any excess flour and set aside.
Whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks then add half the sugar and beat until the mixture is thick and glossy. Fold in the remaining sugar with a metal spoon then scoop the mixture onto the baking sheets and form into rough circles. Bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes or until the meringues are golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool.
Whip the cream and icing sugar until the mixture holds soft peaks then stir in the lemon zest.
Lay one meringue circle onto a serving plate. Spread over half the lemon cream, add the other meringue circle and spoon over the remaining cream. Scatter over the fruit, dust with icing sugar and serve immediately.
