Step 1

Measure and prep all ingredients.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cornstarch and salt. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter, dark brown sugar and granulated sugar until combined.

Step 4

Whisk in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla extract until the mixture is glossy and smooth.

Step 5

Fold in the flour mixture and mix until just combined.

Step 6

Fold in 1 cup of sweetened shredded coconut, chocolate chips and chopped almonds. Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes before baking.

Preheat the oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Use a medium-sized cookie scoop to portion the cookie, spacing the cookies about 2-inches apart.

Bake the cookies, rotating the trays halfway through, for about 12-15 minutes or until the edges are set. Top the cookies with the remaining shredded coconut.

Cool completely and enjoy!
