I think you can put your favorite sugar cookie recipe and just add food coloring.  If you cant find pink just get red but use very, VERY little coloring.  I've never used it but my brother who is in pastry school says that the coloring tasteless.

Here's the one I use. It won't let me past it here but here's the link.

 To make them pink just add food coloring to the dough. I use the wilton gel. I like using it because it doesn't take as much to color anything. 

Good Luck. Hope they turn out great!

if you have a Michael's nearby they have the cutest glitter for food in different colors.

1 cup sugar
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 egg
2 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Beat together butter and sugar on low speed of mixer until light and fluffy. Stir in flavorings and egg. Mix. Stir in flour and baking soda.

Using a small cookie scoop or two spoons, shape dough into balls. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Press cookie down slightly to flatten using the bottom of a glass which has been dipped in sugar. Colored or white sugar may be used.

Bake for 9-11 minutes, just until cookies have set. Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool.

Variation: Substitute 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar for the cup of sugar in above recipe. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours (or overnight). Roll dough out 1/4 inch thick on a lightly floured surface and cut out shapes. Sprinkle with colored sugars or frost. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets, 2 inches apart in a 375°F oven for 7-8 minutes, or until edges are lightly golden brown.

Tips: Do not overbake cookies; watch closely near the end of baking time. Bake on parchment paper for easy cleanup. Use two cookie sheets and have one ready to go into the oven as the first sheet cools (or just transfer parchment paper). For softer cookies, add a tablespoon of sour cream, yogurt or buttermilk.

Makes approximately 4 dozen cookies, depending on size.
