1. Sprinkle macadamia nuts and hazelnuts into the pastry shell.

3. In a small bowl, beat the eggs, corn syrup, sugars, butter, vanilla and salt until well blended.  Pour over nuts.

4. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

Additional Tips
I was not able to find the hazelnuts when I made this pie so I just added a little more of each of the other nuts to make up for the 1/3 cup hazelnuts and it was delicious!
