Line a baking pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Line up the bacon pieces on the pan.
Place in the oven and cook for 18-20 minutes, depending on the thickness. Remove from oven and place on a paper towel lined plate and pat off any excess grease with a paper towel.
Slice up your pear into slices about 1/2 inch thick by 1 inch.
Put a piece of bacon on top of each pear slice and secure them together with a toothpick. Repeat until you are out of pears and bacon, placing the complete pieces on a serving platter. You can also make a pear sandwich, with a slice of bacon between two pieces of pear.
Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon and paprika.
Next, pour a little drop of maple syrup on each piece. Or you can drizzle the maple syrup over everything, your choice.
Serve to your hungry guests.
