At a first glance those look like Lepiotas, possibly Lepiota americana. Although that species is a good edible mushroom, there are some close relatives that are deadly poisonous, so treat them with extreme caution. The stem on L. americana is usually spindle shaped (thickest in the middle) and at least an inch thick at the thickest part. If yours are not, then they are one of the closely related Lepiotas, which can be difficult to ID accurately. The others are not considered to be good edibles, and the similar deadly species should discourage any sane person from experimenting. Incidentally, the deadly Lepiotas have the same toxins as the deadly Amanitas, causing liver failure.

If the stems meet the description above, let us know, and I'll suggest other things you need to verify before we can say that those are L. americana. I stopped mentioning things there because the photos seem to suggest that your specimens have thin stems which suggests other Lepiotas.

Happy mushrooming!

Yes, the stems are thin and relatively consistent in thickness all through their length. I'm trying to print it right now. I can't tell if it's dropping spores or if the red staining is just soaking into the paper.

Thanks for the info!
