- Heat dates, water, and 1/4 cup brown sugar in a saucepan over medium heat; cook until dates are very soft, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
- Stir vinegar into milk in a bowl; set aside to curdle, about 10 minutes.
- Whisk flour and baking soda together in a large bowl; stir in oats and 1 1/2 cups brown sugar. Stir butter, shortening, and milk mixture into flour mixture; cover dough and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
