Preheat oven to 350F. Set out the pie shell on a cookie sheet.
In a large microwavable bowl, melt the butter. Allow it to cool for about 5 minutes, then stir in the sugars, vanilla, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and salt. Whisk in the egg until batter is smooth.
Add the flour and oats until just combined, then gently fold in the apple pie filling. Pour everything into the pie shell; it will come up to the brim.
Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until top has set. Allow it to cool at least 30 minutes before slicing.
Pie keeps for days, covered by foil in the fridge.
