  1. In a bowl, smash the cooked potatoes with a fork or potato masher until are light and fluffy.
  2. Add the cornstarch, flour, bread crumbs, egg, salt, and pepper and mix until a slightly crumbly dough forms.
  3. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and roll out to about ½ inch (1.25 centimeter) thick.
  4. With a mason jar lid or cookie cutter, cut out circles from the dough. Shape them into any emoji or design you’d like with tools like spoons, straws, toothpicks, forks, and your fingers.
  5. Place the shapes on a parchment-lined baking sheet and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  6. Heat the oil in a large, deep pot until it reaches 350°F (180°C).
  7. Add the emojis and fry for 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel or cooling rack and sprinkle with salt. Serve immediately.
  8. Enjoy!
