Line a baking sheet with baking paper and spread the biscuit dough in a thin layer. Send to a hot oven and bake at temperatures up to 200 degrees, no more than 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, first beat only 200 g of butter, and then pour in the condensed milk and continue.

Agar-agar, previously soaked in water, stirring occasionally, boil over medium heat until it begins to thicken. Then add granulated sugar and stir continuously until the sugar is completely dissolved and until a light foam forms.
Beat the egg whites until a white, dense consistency, add citric acid and continue beating until firm foam.
Pour warm agar-agar syrup into the proteins in a thin stream, which should be done at the maximum speed of the mixer. In the process, the mass should increase in volume.
Next, add butter cream with condensed milk to the whites and scroll again at high speed. The mixture should turn slightly yellow and slightly runny.
Transfer the finished soufflé into a frame with a biscuit cake, this should be done quickly, without letting the agar sauce cool down, trim and place in the freezer for 15-20 minutes.
