These are clearly Xerula, but the wavy caps and shout fat stems are unusual for that genus. These are by far the meatiest Xerulas I’ve encountered.

of Hygrophorus, I realized I should have left it up. I believe in the value of archiving our mistakes.

I agree with Walt’s proposal of Xerula – made clear by additional photos showing the elongating rooting stem. But for the record, that first photo suggested Hygrophorus to me.
