Cream Filling

Whisk the mascarpone, yoghurt and lemon rind together.

Tap the centre of each meringue to form a nest.  Warm the coulis in a saucepan.  Turn off the heat and add the remaining whole berries.  Spoon the cream filling into the centre of each meringue, followed by several spoonfuls of the fruit.

Strawberry and rhubarb has to be my favourite summer flavour combination and in this recipe, 
the two juicy fruits lie underneath a 
thick blanket of crunchy, buttery deliciousness.
