Typical use: a thin layer on the surface of a cake (here a pistachio cake) before baking.
Remarks
Depending on the quality and age of your almonds, you may need to alter the quantity of egg white to get the right consistency. I suggest you start by putting half the stated quantity in the bowl, then add more as you need.

You can vary this recipe by using ground hazelnuts instead of almonds.
Keeping
Several days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
