Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a 9-inch pie plate with non-stick baking spray; set aside.
In a large bowl, add the melted butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar; beat well until combined. Beat in the egg, egg yolks, and vanilla. Add in the flour, cornstarch, and salt and mix until just combined. Do not overmix!
Fold in the M&M's and assorted chocolate hearts. Spread the mixture into the prepared pie plate. Top with additional M&M's and chocolate hearts, if desired.
Bake for 38 to 40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown, the edges are completely set. The center of the pie may be slightly jiggly. If your cookie begins to look too dark, you can place a piece of tin foil over the top until it's done baking.
Place pie on a wire rack to cool for at least one hour.
Slice, serve, and enjoy!
