So I made this boneheaded mistake somehow, and I don't know how to get it back.

Long pressing the desktop only gets me wallpaper options.

Any ideas?

It should be a widget or shortcut of sort. That's how it is on custom launchers anyway.

But since I have no app drawer shortcut, I can't get to my app drawer where the widgets and shortcuts are kept.

Usually you can double tap or long press an empty space on the homescreen to bring up settings

If you still have play store add another launcher. You could also go to apps in setting, if that is on one of your home screens and force close the launcher. I should restart with the app drawer icon.

Lightbulb I solved it on mine
I've got same problem yesterday, after multiple automatic updates from the google play - app drawer icon and all custom icons disappeared from the dock. I replaced custom icons, but wasn't able to get app drawer icon back and could access the drawer.
there is no launcher settings in the menu, nor in the desktop options, and even in the launcher options in the system settings there is no option to bring back the app drawer icon. force-stopping launcher, restarting phone, cleaning cash and even dalvik cash doesn't help either.
the only way to bring it back that worked, was clearing all data for trebuchet :
  • menu button > manage apps > trebuchet > clear data

however (!) when you do so, everything you have on your screens will disappear, and you will have to customize your screens again and recreate all shortcuts, widgets and folders.

I wonder why it happened and if there is way to fix it without loosing your customization.

I didn't run titanium backup after latest ROM flash, thus I didn't have a backup for trebuchet, but if you have it, try to restore data for trebuchet. I'm sure it would be easiest solution

Thank you for the answer, and the heads-up. This worked perfectly! Thank you for saving me from a massive headache!
