  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Mix first four ingredients and 1 teaspoon cinnamon; cut in butter until crumbly. Remove 1 cup mixture to a small bowl; stir in 1/4 cup flour until blended. Reserve for topping.
  2. Press remaining crumb mixture onto bottom and up sides of an ungreased 9-in. tart pan. Bake until light brown, 8-10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Increase oven setting to 400°.
  3. In a large saucepan, combine apples and brown sugar; cook over medium heat until apples are tender, 7-9 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, raisins and remaining flour. Transfer to crust; sprinkle with topping. Bake until golden brown and filling is bubbly, 20-22 minutes. Place on a wire rack; cool at least 20 minutes.
  4. For cinnamon cream, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add syrup and cinnamon; beat until soft peaks form. Serve with tart. Yield: 12 servings.
