"biscuits de Reims rose" or "biscuits rose"
Explanation:
The term is usually kept as is, mostly to retain its French "flavor." I found a reference where the term is anglicised simply by being shortened. Look at this citation:

http://www.mscoffee.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=CTGY&St...

"Many of the products we have selected for your enjoyment, have been featured in magazine articles as well as on television. The latest being the Biscuits Fossier - Biscuits Rose (The Pink Champagne Biscuit from Reims, the Capitol of the Champagne Region, in France.) seen on the television program Food Network."

Reims pink 'sponges'


Explanation:
Just a point, long after the event, that these are not exactly what we would traditionally call 'biscuits' in EN — they are closer to the type known as a 'boudoir biscuit', AKA 'sponge finger' — they have a crispy exterior, but are soft in the middle.
