Peel pears, cut in half lengthwise and core. Place in a shallow 3-quart (3 L) rectangular baking dish.

Add syrup and turn pears to coat. Bake for 20 minutes or until pears are soft; turn and baste once with syrup. (Under-ripe fruit will take a bit longer.)

Transfer pears to a baking sheet, hollow side up. Add a little water to baking dish to thin syrup; set syrup aside. Top each pear half with a slice of cheese and sprinkle with Coconut Crumble. Broil until cheese is melted and topping is golden. To serve, spoon a little syrup onto dessert plates, top each plate with 2 pear halves and garnish with mint, if desired.
