Notes: Hello everybody!

I have found this mushroom on my property, and would like to know what is it?
Is is edible?

I found it under the leaves of the oak and manzanita trees.

They grew in small bunches not far from each other.
The full grown size is aprox. 3-4" tall. with cap 3-4" across.

The spore print is white.
Mushroom has very white gills, very close together. Has white flesh and steam.
Top is sort of almond color. Also it stays fresh for a long time.

Please help me to identify this mushroom.

Thank you
Irena
