Actually, puffballs are round ball mushrooms, with no stem and solid mass if you cut them open. I believe that this is Pholiota Squarrosa, or commonly called a Scaly Pholiota. They tend to be found in clusters near the bases of conifer trees around this time of year. If I have the ID correct, they are edible when they are fresh.

And a very nice photo.

I agree with Peter - it is also called the Shaggy Pholiota.
