Preheat oven to 400°F200°C.
In small saucepan, combine maple syrup, brown sugar, butter, vanilla and cinnamon. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Set syrup aside.
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.
Coconut Crumble: Combine sweetened flaked coconut, packed brown sugar and softened butter until crumbly.
