  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Place flour, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, butter, basil, both zests, lemon juice, and salt in a food processor. Pulse until large, moist clumps form. Measure level tablespoonfuls of dough; roll between your palms to form balls. Place on a large baking sheet, spacing 2 apart. Lightly dust the bottom of a flat measuring cup with powdered sugar and press cookies into 2 rounds, dusting cup bottom with powdered sugar as needed to prevent sticking. Sprinkle tops of cookies with sanding sugar, if using.
  2. Bake until edges are brown, about 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool.
