RECIPE: Mixed Berry Tiramisu

(FOX19) - Kim Baretta of Garnish Catering visited the FOX19 Morning Xtra Thursday morning with a delicious Father's Day dessert idea!

She writes:

"My mother taught me this recipe. I know that it is very colorful and my husband dearly loves this dessert.  It is delicious any time of year, but very pretty with the 4th of July coming up very soon with the red, white and blue color. You could substitute any fruit that is relatively dry."
