those look a lot like agaricus augustus, how do they smell when you crush a little piece of tissue? augustus has a really distinct sweet smell, I've been told it resembles the smell of almond extract but I don't really know what that smells like. I've been seeing them around seattle lately as well, here's a shot of some from last fall at the perfect stage for picking:

Those look like what DH said. They are called the Prince mushroom. Very good eating.

Make sure you verify the bruising reaction and odor. There are other Agaricus species that look exactly like those. Some of them are of unknown edibility.

A quick way to verify bruising on white stemmed mushrooms like Agaricus is to scratch the stem with a fingernail (scratch hard). It will usually take a few minutes for the color changes to occur, so be patient.

Happy mushrooming!
