Cookie Hunt

I'm a Lutheran, and we physically cannot gather without the presence of food. When I was younger, someone always used to bring these particular cookies to church gatherings. They were your basic thumbprint cookie, a buttery shortbread with a round, filled depression in the middle. These were filled not with jam but with a kind of sugary, icing-like substance that was firm yet yielding, and which crumbled and dissolved in the mouth. It was also invariably a violent bubble-gum pink. I am fairly sure they were store-bought. Does anyone have any idea what these were called or where they might hail from? I've had the weirdest calling lately to pursue them.
