       From your description they sound like puffballs. I have found and used 
puffballs that weighed 9 lbs. up in Wisconsin!!  That was the biggest I 
found. They averaged 4-5 lbs. If you cut them open and the interior is a soft 
solid white, they are prime. If they are turning yellowish, they are past 
prime. They are delicious sliced (peeled) dipped in egg and bread crumbs and 
fried and they also make a darn good mushroom soup. 
       How I envy you!! Down here in El Paso there is no such thing as 
mushrooms. . except in the grocery store!
