as your photos tend to suggest, this is almost certainly Rhizopogon occidentalis, Christopher. Sporocarps of this species tend to be comparatively large, and for that reason can be sampled, once the sporocarps of peeled, sliced into 1/8-inch slices, dried, and sprinkled sparingly with salt. Use as you would potato chips with a nice dip.

Mature specimens can sometimes have an odor of pear in my experience.
