Place the butter in pan over medium-low heat. Allow it to melt, then boil, then sizzle and turn nutty-brown.
Pour the browned butter into a heat-safe dish, and allow it to cool and solidify.
Place the solidified brown butter in a large mixing bowl, along with the brown sugar.
Beat on medium-high speed until very pale and fluffy.
Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla, mixing until combined.
Add the flour, toasted chopped pecans, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt, mixing just until combined.
Use a 1.5-tablespoon scoop to portion the dough into balls on the prepared baking sheets.
Sprinkle the unbaked cookies with demerara sugar and press a pecan half into each one.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until set around the edges but still very soft towards the middle.
