They're more like petit fours. It's a spongy cake made with almond paste, layered with apricot jam and topped with chocolate.
We have something similar, called Dominoes. They are a sponge-like gingerbread topped with a fruit jelley and almond paste, cut into cubes and then covered in chocolate. I love them but have never tried to make them myself.
I love Dominoes! I can only get them at Christmas at World Market or the commissary at Quantico.

Tricolor cookies are more of an Italian-American thing- they started in Italian bakeries in New York City.
