In the bowl of a standing mixer, whip the egg whites, lime zest and lime juice on medium speed until frothy, about 3 to 4 minutes.
Start adding the granulated sugar slowly, about 2 tablespoons at a time, until completely combined and mixture holds a stiff peak, 2 to 3 minutes more. The meringue should appear white and glossy.
Remove the bowl from the stand, sift the cornstarch over the meringue, and use a rubber spatula to gently fold and completely incorporate the cornstarch.
Using a large soup spoon, drop generous scoops of meringue onto the prepared baking sheets; each one should be about 2 to 2–1/2 inches around. As you drop them, you will be able to make some nice wavy shapes.
Bake for 30 minutes and then reduce the temperature to 175 ̊F.
Let the meringue dry in the oven for another 4 to5 hours. The outside should be crisp, and they should easily be removed from the parchment. Set aside to cool completely.
In the bowl of a standing mixer, with the whisk attachment, whip heavy cream and mascarpone cheese on low speed until very soft peaks form, only a couple minutes –be careful not to over whip the heavy cream or it will harden.
Add the mashed avocado and confectioners’ sugar, and continue to beat until stiff peaks form, a minute or so more.
One by one, make meringue sandwiches. Place an individual round meringue with the top down, spoon on about 3 generous tablespoons of avocado whipped cream. If using strawberries, add a sliced strawberry before placing another individual round meringue, right side up, on top.
